Many people have posted their six month update. Well, that slipped past a month ago. I guess time flies when you’re walking again!
My update is positive. Wound has been closed for some time now and have been walking about two miles a day. I’m pretty pleased as how my leg muscles have returned. I was essentially on one-leg for over twenty weeks last year due to my re-rupture and conservative treatment the second time around. When I first saw my atrophy, it was hard to believe (as in my shin bone was protruding). But check ‘em out now:
This is four months after going into two shoes.
The repaired AT is pretty thick but getting more limber each day. There is still a lack of strength and I can barely get up on a one-legged toe lift. I know there is still a ways to go but, aside from not running yet, most things have returned to normal.
I hope this might be of some encouragement to all our unlucky newcomers…no matter how sucky it may seem, it will definitely get better. Trust me on that one. And I really can’t thank the blog enough for all the support–in terms of advice and encouragement. Especially Dennis and Kristin. And if you read this, Walshie, I’m back on the damn Nicorette. New Year’s Resolution…yet again. Here’s to a kickass 2009.
