PT appt #6 - 5 months since surgery

Saw my PT today and told him about the bone bit in my heel. He was pretty amazed - LOL! He was happy that bump was quite a bit smaller now. We discussed my slllooowwwwww progress. He said I’m either over-doing it, not doing enough or something is wrong. He ruled out the last two since my doc says everything looks good and he knows I’m not one who doesn’t do my exercises. So, somehow, I’m overdoing it. Today I just did walking in the pool, swam some laps and did some heel raises in the pool until I could feel the heel starting to get unhappy. At home I’m going to go back to seated heel raises with a weight until that is pain free. I did that last night and it was not pain free. It wasn’t as painful as when I do it standing but it wasn’t a cakewalk. Tomorrow I’ll take a break and see how things feel on Sunday. My PT said if I take a break and things go better after that then I’m overdoing it. Tonight I’m going to put heel lifts in my shoes to see if that helps the achilles relax a bit as well. I don’t feel like I’m doing much since I have fewer exercises that I did with my right foot! I go back again at the end of the month and I’m hoping I’ll have some improvement to report!
