2. Yes, not fun with crutches during recovery, but I managed to work
full-time after a day or two at home with my foot (in a cast) elevated to reduce the swelling and the throbbing "discomfort".

I found out how often I pick up something to carry it, even if it'sjust room to room. That's really hard to do when you're on crutches. I carried one or more plastic bags with the string pull tops (plastic grocer bags would do) to carry things. The string handles allowed me to carry things while I was on crutches.

After it was healed and was allowed to walk without crutches, I had Very few problems. Of course, I was uch younger then (in my twenties).
