16 weeks now….looking good

So I am now 16 weeks and 1 day s/p. I saw my surgeon this morning and everything seems to be going well. He has cleared me for all activity except for plyometrics, jumping, and jogging. I am very excited to get back into my gym and start some cardio training. I have not gained a lot of weight but feel just weak and out of shape due to the inability to do more intense cardio. I got a date with the elliptical machine tomorrow morning!

As for my progress, my ROM is good, I no longer get a tight or tension feeling along my scar when stretching (but it still feels bound down some), and I am getting closer to be able to do a standing heel raise. I have just now been able to do some eccentric work but get fatigue very fast. I can also take 2 steps while on my toes before my calf fatigues out and I end up just landing on my heel.

This has been a very long process but hard to believe 4 months has already gone by. My only real complaint is I still get moderate swelling towards the end of the day.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

  1. Congratulations! It’s great to see what 16 weeks can look like. I’m sure in no time you’ll be doing even more.

  2. Looking neat. Good luck with the rest of your recovery n getting back to the gym.
