Week 15 Progress

Hello all, I hope everyone is progressing through therapy and slowly making it back to a (somewhat) normal lifestyle. It’s interesting to me that I really don’t notice progress day to day, but when I look at it from a weekly standpoint, the progress is very noticeable.

The last few weeks I have really been focusing on my gait, specifically, making sure I am trying to push off my right foot at the back of my stride instead of doing the flat footed “boot walk”. It is nerve racking at first and even still now a little bit when I push off that back foot slightly and feel the tendon/calf muscle firing.

I tried doing flat ground calf raises with both feet and was happy to feel no pain and that my muscles in my leg fired equally. After about 5 to 10 however my right leg was tired, but that’s something I can work on!

I had a concert and a wedding this past weekend which proved to be quite the test on my leg. I wore a light ankle brace for extra support which helped and I felt pretty good other than a little swelling I had on Sunday. Not to worry, a little ice and elevation took care of that!

Keep your head up and stay positive!

  1. Glad things are progressing well!

  2. Sounds like you’re doing great, bigcatcher! Keep concentrating on getting your gait back to normal. Funny that that is something we have to concentrate on, but we really do!

    Keep up the great work!
