3 Weeks Post Op

July 1, 2009 | |

Hi all, just had my second visit to the doctor, three weeks post op.  They removed my staples and stitches.  Boy does it feel nice to get the cast off for a while.  My wound is healing fine, no problems.  They put me into another cast for two more weeks and then its on to the aircast boot.  My foot is now set at 90 degrees.  Boy was my tendon stiff and it took a while to get it to the 90 degree position.  Its amazing how stiff and strong the tendon is. So after about 5 minutes of stretching and coaxing the tendon to 90 degrees, my leg is once again in a cast prison.  My tendon is still a little sore so I popped  a couple advil and I am back to elevating and resting my leg at home.  I’m looking forward to walking/limping in a few weeks when I start physical therapy and then hopefully ready to drive a month from now.  Happy 4th of July weekend to all!!!
