Week 12-13

Week 12
Unfortunately this week was a bit of a lost week. I developed some granulation tissue on the back of my heel, which basically felt like an open blister. My surgeon trimmed it back, but it has made for a lost week rehab wise since I have not been able to walk on my foot this week. The wound is healing back now, and I should be able to get things back on track next week.

Week 13
Half the week was recovering from the cut still, but the second half of the week I moved more towards being back on schedule. I use the boot whenever I am outside, but I use two shoes indoors and it feels great. Rehab consists of calf raises (15lb single leg on the leg press), 30-second balancing on one leg, 2in and 4in stair steps (I can go up, but not down yet), and slight calf muscle stretches. Biking indoors is getting better too, I am biking with two shoes at approximately 60% of my normal power output. After losing about 1.5 weeks to the cut, I seem to be back on track.

  1. Ugh I’m sorry to hear this! Having constant progression is one of the few small treasures we have in the recovery process. Sounds like its just a week which is not too bad at all. And maybe you can still do some ROM and/or balancing stuff so your ankle/foot muscles can get stronger while your heel heals? Wishing you a speedy recovery to get back on the slow recovery train :)

  2. Thanks, Lauren! I think I finally rounded the corner. Hope your recovery is going well!

  3. t’s great to be here with everyone, I have a lot of knowledge from what you share, to say thanks, the information and knowledge here helps me a lot.

  4. Healing always need time because it conect with our body tissues and we need to get rest and give the time to them. It’s all happened when you start working for it and take medicine.
