next go visit your local medical supply store and buy one of these:
plan on taking it everywhere you go, especially the movies. it will make sitting, and therefore getting up a lot less painful. anyone who laughs at this injury has clearly not had it.
I had the exact same injury 7 years ago after getting slew-footed. it was a good 18 months before I could sit (and get up) without pain.
My wife and I are mostly only going to the hoytie toytie movie theaters that have recliners because the chairs in the other theaters sucks.
If it took 18 months to heal, I am almost there.
