24 Weeks Down…and I’m not looking back!

Hey all,

Thought I would check in since it’s been awhile. Like many others, once you get over that initial 6 week hump in your recovery life seems to get back to normal and you tend to forget that just a few short months earlier you were rendered basically helpless!

Right now, I’d say I’m at about 96% for full recovery and don’t often think about my injury unless I am going to physio. Right now, we’re simply working on getting the calf back to full strength which will hopefully be any week now.

For those beginning their journey…hang in there! I promise that ¬†as soon as you can ditch the crutches life gets dramatically better quite quickly. Listen to your body and push as hard as you are comfortable doing. I believe I was lucky to be paired with a great ortho as well as great physiotherapist.

I am going to make an effort to come back more often and help others out as I relied on this site heavily for advice, timelines, guidelines…etc.

It’s helpful to just read some positives, especially if your rounding 5 weeks still NWB. It sounds like you are making great progress with your recovery to.

Good to see you are still around and continuing with a strong recovery - keep going, grat news that your calf is nearly back to full strength, I am struggling a bit but nothing serious, just a bit slower than I wanted - as long as each weeks continues with improvements no matter how small - it’s all good.

Don’t be a stranger Eva and happy recoveries all :)
