Week 6, walking FWB

Not much to report but somehow my blog messed up and the only way I know to fix it is to post something.
I am starting my sixth week and still seeing signs of improvement daily. I am FWB (in the boot) and going for a walk every morning and evening increasing the distance slightly as long as there is no suspicious pain. Went 2 miles this morning. My injury is a debridement, not a full rupture, and the tendon was not cut from the bone during surgery so my recovery may be quicker than most. However, the tendon was a real mess before surgery so how quick and how complete my recovery is are 2 different things. I have a lot of work to do. Stretching the tendon starts at PT this week for the first time. I’ve gotten more comfortable living in the boot than I expected to and am a little nervous about giving up the protection. I am considering buying a range of motion (ROM) boot before I go back to work in week 8.
