Yeah! Went to the Doc's this morning and I can 'wean myself off the foot brace'. Does this mean I can run around the room jumping up and down? I would - if my ankle wasn't still in pain. She showed me where the tendon was damaged and that bit doesn't hurt half as much as my ankle - apparently where the bone bruise is. Anyway now it's just a matter of strengthening my ankle, doing ankle exercises and putting up with the pain. I go back in five weeks. She said the other option was physical therapy, but really, I can't see spending a bunch of money on something I could probably do myself. A therapist came in and showed me what to do and it's not rocket science.
I did put on a shoe - which felt really strange after four weeks - and walked around the bookstore. Ow. Not sure what I'm going to do for work tomorrow. I might take the brace with me and see how it goes without.
