Too much, too soon

May 5th, 2013

14 days post op. I went out to dinner last night to get out of the house. Sitting at home day in and day out is so boring! Today I went to my sisters house for dinner with the family, and I am hurting pretty bad tonight. Foot up on 4 pillows and ice under my ankle. I just took some advil about 30 minutes ago. Starting to feel better now. I can’t remember who’s blog I read, but they said you can feel ice through the cast, and guess what?! YOU CAN! Ahhh.

I learned how to go up a few steps with my crutches today. Scary! Although I did need my husband to push me a bit! I can go down a few steps on them now too :) I still prefer the knee scooter when possible; it is so much easier! I feel like every time I need to get up to do anything it is such a workout!

It has also become easier to ask for help. It was so hard at first. I’m so used to cooking and cleaning and working. Now I just sit around. I started drawing and doing crafts to pass the long days by.

2 more weeks until I can put my foot down and put partial weight on it. I CANNOT WAIT!

    I am a 25 year old woman, recovering from Achilles tendon surgery.
