4.5 months post surgery and I’m on my way

March 15th, 2016

This ha been a very tough injury but I feel like I’m on my way . I have  PT 3x a week and am walking with lifts in my sneakers . My PT says I have almost full range of motion . Learning to walk heel to toe and mastering that and now getting my ankle stronger and balance . There is some scar tissue and the foot is a bit cranky at times but seems to slowly be getting better . Having more confidence in my walking . Can’t wait to get another 1/4 inch off my heel and really can’t wait to be able to walk flat footed without lifts . I went on the stationary bike the other day and that felt very good. There is a bit of the nerve issue still but it seems to be dissipating . Hopefully it will be gone for good soon. I use ice at night even though seeking is at a minimal . Anyone use heat I was told it may be good . Can’t wait to getting to wearing normal shoes … And I am told by June I can golf … Happy healing everyone !

    thanks Arib, for the update! I’m 3 months post rupture. I’m only doing rehab 2X a week, and have no complaints. I actually have lifts inside a comfy pair of sneakers to wear as house slippers…:-) they are nice to hang out in. As for the heels in my shoes, they make me taller! I recovered the inch I lost due to age, and gained a little more! LOL
    Happy healing!……… Manny

    Hey Arib, not sure if you’re still peaking at your blog but mine as well give it a shot.

    How has your sural nerve pain been? Is it now gone? I am about 25 days POST-OP and I am starting to get that pain and I am hoping it’ll subside within the next few months as I have to travel in about 3.5 months.
