Thanks to all of you who corrected my post. I was incorrect, it IS month 4 and finally in a shoe. LONG recovery but totally worth it! Thanks for catching this Ryan

Happy 2012 everyone. I am really working hard at PT and I have the best therapist EVER!!!! Kim has completely changed my life the last 6 weeks and for her, I am truly grateful. I am in an actual shoe, 3/4 bootie and walking better everyday. This is a long road and it is this website that has changed my attitude. Thanks to all of you who post and help me realize what I am going through is normal. Hope you have the BEST year ever.

Hi everyone, I am almost at the 3 month mark and I am walking in my boot completely without crutches. I have 1 wedge in the boot but I have my DR’s appointment next Monday to hopefully get the ok to move to a sneaker around the first of the year. I have been extremely encouraged by this website. Stay positive!! Things do get better, I promise

I can’t thank all of you on this site for helping me through this trying time. I seriously appreciate all of the supportive emails, and comments and advice. I am still in the boot, 2 wedges still but I am starting to be able to walk with out crutches. I haven’t really felt my foot or Achilles except at PT, I guess that’s a good thing? I am hoping to begin to bear some weight on the foot next week. I am really nervous as my tendon is still really tight and causing a little pain in the arch area of my foot.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

So today was my lucky day, allegedly!!!!! Anyway went for my follow up visit since post op cast & my leg looked like something from sesame street-yes a muppet. Hairy, ugly, skinny, unrecognizable to me as my own, but too pathetic to give up on. My new boot is ok. It is heavy, medal, ugly, painful, and completely NOT at all what I thought it would be. I am still non weight bearing. I guess I expected a miracle. Oh well maybe next month. Anyone else have a lot of numbness around the ankle area? How about dried blood from surgery? Good news, I soaked in the bathtub tonight for the first time since labor day- half full. Hope you all are well & recovering quickly!!!!

Hi Everyone, I am getting very excited to have my first cast removed on November 7th. I am writing to see if any of you went directly to a boot? I am SO looking forward to scratching my ankle and seeing what kind of shape my leg is in…..sort of!?!? Any help here is welcomed!
