A possible setback?

September 15, 2008 | |

Hi, I went without my compression stocking this past Saturday. I also worked out my upper body, some stationary cycling, and then did a bit of walking in the mall on the same day. My foot swelled pretty badly as a result of my genius workout efforts. I also started getting some slight pain right at my heel (where tendon meets heel I guess) when doing my PT stretches later that day. I started freaking out b/c  I read about folks re-rupturing the tendon in other areas during recovery.

Anyway, I started icing and elevation Sat night and most of Sunday. I will try to go back to my PT regimen of stretches on the AT today. Fortunately, I also see the PT + Ortho on Wed.  I am supposed to get a wedge out on Wed. I am up to about 80 lb weight bearing on the leg now. It is pretty tricky to increase the weight by 10 lb / day once you get above 50 lb or so. Hopefully I am not overdoing it.
