2-Weeks Post Op


Visited the Dr. today for my 2 week post op appointment.  Everything was doing great according to doctor.  He explained exactly what the surgery entailed as there was more to do there than anticipated.  He had to do an Achilles lengthening, FHL transfer, bone spur removal, repair rupture and graft it all together.  Today he removed staples and sutures (seemed like 100 of them).  Cleaned the area up and put me in a cast for the foreseeable future.  I have very little swelling and virtually no pain at this time which is great.  So I am going to continue to ice and elevate as much as possible.  I also broke out the IWalk getting ready to get familiar with it again.  Last time it was a lifesaver allowing me to be hands free and independent which is nice.

Looking forward to continued healing and counting the days to cast removal and weight bearing!!

I do have pics  if I can figure out how to upload them.

  1. Glad you’re first check was good. Yes ice and elevate! I’m still icing at 8+ months. :)

  2. A very good informative article. I’ve bookmarked your website and will be checking back in future.
