I don't know if walking is the right word  I kinda move foward with crutches.  I was up 4 hrs post op.

The biggest pain is literally like a killer shin splint ,, made worse by the years of compromised  muscle function.

Coming up on a month now..the biggest problem is the calf area..it's like a really bad shin spling because of muscle imbalance over the years...off the meds so no more nightmares

Walking, kinda and looking at superlight hiking gear

One word for lightweight hiking shit: cuben fiber.

Ok I guess that's two words - cause it's twice as expensive. But worth it.
Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!
