Well, as the title states, I’m 10 about 10 weeks post-op ATR #2.

I’ve been doing hour long PT sessions twice a week. Most of the sessions consist of the following –

1. 5-8 minutes on a bike
2. 15 minutes of ultra sound
3. 10-15 minutes of massage
4. 5 minutes of balance exercises
5. 10 - 15 minutes of stretching

My first day of PT my ROM dorsiflexion was -4*, as of last week I was at 9*. My other ankle has a 15* dorsiflexion, so I’m getting there. Walking in the boot is going well, I still have pain in my heel after a extended period of time on my foot. My PT said this is perfectly normal still and that it will take some time for that to go away.

Anyways an interesting fact that I came across today…As of August 31, this whole ordeal has cost my insurance $40,000. It’s costing my insurance $600/hr for PT. For now I am going twice a week until my Doctor re-evaluates on September 30th. My PT said that he expects another 6 weeks of PT to be ordered after my re-eval for some more intensive strengthening. So when all is said and done, I’m expecting this whole thing to cost my insurance between $55,000 - $60,000. Remember I’ve torn my Achilles twice this summer and had 2 surgeries 6 weeks apart.

That’s all for now…
