new to the whole blog experience but thought it would be cool to share what I have gone through with people. I am a 23 year old male attending college, I was attempting to shed a few pounds so was running everyday. I decided to add a little basketball to help with the monotony and bam, going for a rebound it happened. Just like all the things you read I thought someone had kicked my in the back of my ankle but then turned around and saw no one. It took about 24 hours to start swelling but by hour 36 it was huge. It happened on a thursday afternoon and I did not see a doctor until the following tuesday…and had surgery that friday.
It has been about 10 weeks since my surgery, I was in a cast with no weight bareing completely for 7 weeks (cheating a little), my toes and right below them had gotten real dry and began cracking bad and started to hurt so I got my cast off a week early. It took about a day for me to lose the crutches but I was moving very slowing and putting no weight on my toes. It has been about 2 and a half weeks since I started walking and still can’t put any weight on my toes with that foot alone, but can if I use both. I am walking pretty well but with a noticible limp, and what hurts the most is my heel, which has become very sore becuase it bares most of my weight. My ankle is still pretty swollen and so is my achilles near my incision but has gone down.
I see the doctor in a week and a half to begin physical therapy and hopely get back to as normal as I want. I cant wait!
