@cheris Wow, that's exactly what my PT said today. I waddled in and then we practiced with me "trying" to walk normal. Didn't quite make it but I see hope for the future. Guess it will just take time but I will be SO happy when I can start to walk normal again and get on a Treadmill at the gym!

@dkapustin great advice here from @cheris and @javajude. I remember it took me a while to feel like I was walking normally too, but it did finally happen. I do remember making a conscious effort to do it. I think I felt the greatest accomplishment when I was finally able to do stairs without holding the bannister. I think that took a good year, or maybe even more.
