Well i can’t believe it i’ve finally had my last plaster removed 9 weeks after my ATR 8 weeks Post OP. I never thought this day would arrive. The scar looks great a thin line and when you run your finger along it you can feel the slight bump. The dryness on my foot isn’t as pretty though don’t think i’ll be getting any foot modeling offers, i’ve just washed it which felt great and covered it in cream. I really did feel sorry for the PT who had to touch my foot for her initial assessment.

I now have a PAIR of shoes NEW may i add bought especially for this occasion lol…. with a heel raise and am walking (kind of) with crutches and approx 50 % weight on the foot. My foot is still tight at the back but not hurting the PT will work on this. I am also being booked in for 6-8 HYDRO-THERAPY sessions which is physio in the water teaching me pool exercises anyone else had this? I have also been encouraged to go swimming independently walking on heels and toes etc in the water i will start this tomorrow any effective techniques/exercises you can recommend? Aswel as continuing on the exercise bike.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to the creator of this site and to all fellow ATR’S your experiences/advice/ and input has been so valuable to me assisting my progress and aiding my recovery so far. I know this is only the beginning but i do feel like i’ve achieved so much and will continue to improve, this site has provided great reassurance and motivation when things wern’t getting me down or i had any concerns

Nice. Congrats. I hope to be joining you in about 2 weeks. That hydro-therapy will be great. Only our super duper clinics would have that here. I could only wish I could make use of that when the time comes. Good luck.
