3rd Week Post-Op- 1st Follow-up & Suture Removal

Today I had my first follow appointment and it went well. My appointment was at 1:15 but I got there much earlier than that. They quickly called me back. They took my splint off and my doctor came in and said that I was doing really well. He flexed my foot all the way to a 90 degree angle and surprisingly it didn’t hurt, it was just tight. There is a small lump where the tear is but he said that is normal. I will start PT next week and he put me back in a CAM boot with one wedge. I’m just happy to be able to shower again lol. But I have to sleep with the boot. I will be in the boot for the next four weeks with NWB status still. He told me to point and flex my foot after I when I am about to put my boot back on (after I shower). After the next four weeks NWB, I will be walking again! I have gained all hope back and maybe I will have a little chance to enjoy summer after all. :)

    magnificent publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don’t notice this. You should proceed your writing. I’m sure, you have a great readers’ base already!
