Road to Recovery

Until 23rd February 2016 it was easy to complete 10,000 steps or higher most days. I had major right foot reconstruction on that date so was non weight bearing for 8 weeks and then gradual increases in daily stepping have increased mobility of my right foot. At the end of June 2016, my surgeon was so happy with my progress that he just encouraged me and I was discharged from his care. Swelling will continue to occur for at least 18 months post surgery. I have found that if I exceed 6,500 steps the foot is too swollen to do much more than 4,000 steps for a couple of days. Being able to log my steps and be accountable to someone out there encourages me greatly. 5 out of the 7 days I usually reach my target of 6,500 steps. Thanks for this opportunity to log my steps manually.
