So it’s 5 weeks post op for me. Pain pretty much is gone. The only thing that ever bugs me is the incision. It doesn’t hurt but it’s so dry that when I move at all it feels really right. But the tendon feels good.

I’m so ready to walk again. I really hate that I’m here alone all the time! It makes time for me to worry about things like, how the hell can I get back into 2 shoes in 3 weeks like the doctor wants. My incision goes from where my heel meets the floor and then up the back of my ankle about 6 inches. The dried blood from surgery is all still under the steri strips. So it’s like hard. So question:

Has anyone ever been allowed to go into orthaheel clogs instead of tennis shoes?

The tennis shoes will rub and that makes me really nervous. I’m going to ask the doctor next week when I go for my 6 week check up.

What do I have to expect from physical therapy and walking for the first time in 6 weeks?

Thanks :)
