12 weeks

Hard to believe I am now at the 3 month mark. I am scheduled to see my surgeon tomorrow morning. Therapy is going well and I have regained almost 100% of my ankle motion. Only still feel some tugging at the incision site with stretching.

My intrinsic mm strength is much better but my calf still feels so weak. I will get the green light to start more calf specific strengthening after tomorrow so I am looking forward to that. Only other annoying thing is the swelling I still get. Part of it is my job as a physical therapist and being up on my feet for 10+ hrs. I bought a compression sock and that seems to be helping some. I am not a big pill taker but I have been taking more Advil regularly to help with the swelling. I am always amazed at how good my leg feels after my therapist massages all the swelling out.

I hope everyone is doing well!

  1. Congrats! Looking forward to myself at twelve weeks! Hopefully, I’ll be doing as well as you. I start work in week 9, hoping I’ll be able to work. Looking forward to more of your progress reports.
