No advantage really to making it perform earlier than later, in my opinion.
Early days still.
I didn't start until sometime between week 5 and 6. Started with down and once that felt comfortable I tried up. I can't remember being given any guidance on when to start.When can we start trying to step on operated leg on the stairs? phsyo will start next week.
This sounds a bit terrible, but I used, bad leg goes to hell, to remember that one always goes first, going down, and good leg to heaven, to use that leg for going up. It really helped me remember which leg to use.
So the difference is only 5mm in your case? I am sure you wouldn’t really feel it in couple if weeks. Mine is more like a cm different now. I will find out on my phsyo appointment next Tuesday.So confirmation from my surgeon today that he found my operated leg to be approximately 15mm shorter than my other leg so chose the appropriate implant and made the leg approximately 10mm longer. Says it will take a few months longer for the muscles to adjust and grow. Looks like I’ll also need new orthotics soon :(
