” good leg” tendinitis

Published by buddy670 under Uncategorized

After the initial 2 weeks, I think the hardest part of this process for me has been the strain my good leg took.  From crutches to the knee scooter it didn’t matter it just kept getting worse and worse. I finally had to give up my dreams of somewhat staying in shape and just completely rest, so from weeks 6-11, I just had to go to therapy and that was it , I wasn’t able to go to the gym or  even swim. Over the past month my “good leg” specifically my AT and calf have received more therapy than my ATR leg, ie….. Ultrasound, stim, manual message and ice. The dr says now that I have transitioned to 2 shoes it will get better, I’m hoping he’s right and for some extra insurance I’m going to a sports message therapist this week, so we will see…….

has anyone else had this issue and did the transition to 2 shoes quickly cure it. I have been wearing even ups the whole time I started walking in the boot so being at different heights wasn’t really an issue. If you feel my calf it has knots going all the way up and down the outside portion

This is my first post. I am currently 11 weeks post surgery. I have been addicted to this website since I found it during those brutal first 2 weeks after surgery. Everything has gone great and I have been happy with everything along the way. I have definitely learned what the term incremental progress means. I guess that is a good and bad thing, good because you will consistently see progress and bad because the progress is so slow. I have gone to therapy 3 x per wekk since week 3 and really believe that is a big factor in your recovery.
