    Last night marked the 4 week point of the evening I fractured my foot. This morning I went in for my follow-up x-ray and the Dr. was really impressed with how much progress the foot has made! She said I can even ditch the Pneumatic Walking Boot if I feel comfortable with doing so. Tonight I am going to try on a right shoe for the first time in a month, and use one crutch still, and see how that goes. That being said, I have to go back in another month for another x-ray and if all is good, I'm cleared to get back on the ice!

    Glad to hear that you are doing better. Don't re-injure it though! That would suck.

    Thanks. I'm certainly taking my time and am continuing to wear my boot.

    Now you are off crutches, watch your weight since you wont be burning many calories for a while.

    Good call on the Skate Fenders.

    I play a "high" level of adult league and about a year ago I took a good one off the outside of my right foot.

    I could hardly even put weight on it for two to three straight weeks.

    Went in to the doctor because I was convinced it was broken, but it turned out to be strongly bruised and was a much smaller recovery time than if it had been broken. (Although some bruises can be just as bad, or worse).

    Bottom line is after that, I bought Skate Fenders. Are they perfect? No, not at all. And they do not protect any kind of shot of the front of the foot.

    But long story short, I think they have saved me from a lot more pain and trouble, as I have felt multiple shots hit off my boot only to have the energy dissipated throughout the protective plastic. I don't know why more NHL defensemen aren't wearing them yet.

    Thanks Chara, they certainly are better than nothing. I wish I had them BEFORE this happened. Oh well.

    Well today I had my final Dr. appointment and after 8 weeks, I'm all healed up!!! Dr. prescribed me some physical therapy sessions. She said I could be back on the ice in a month or less! She was very impressed with how fast I healed and said that I might not even need a full 4 weeks of PT (going twice a week).

    You can barely see where the fracture was, basically above the top left side of "N" in "Bone".

    I played on Friday night for the first time since I broke my foot, which was back in April!!!

    The good news, my foot was fine! The bad news, my cardio was so bad, on top of that, we only had 7 skaters! A great way to get back into it, haha.
