Pete B, I skim read your post and thought that you had had a 2 hour plane ride and skydived !!
I will be flying to Paris next Wednesday for a one week holiday. Planning to visit Disneyland for a day, play a little golf and walk the sights of the city. Should be a real test for my 10 week post op leg - not taking a walking boot or crutches !!
My walking is improving, still very much flat footed and limping - improves every day.
