Freed from the cast back on Oct. 9th!
I hit the showers immediately and began massaging the foot and the area around the tendon. The advice of everyone on this site was extremely useful. So much so that only after seeing my PT twice she called to tell me on Oct. 17 that I got the green light to take off the walking boot from time to time and try bearing as much weight as I could - comfortably.
Well… she called only because I left her a message telling her I tripped on my front porch the night before. Yes, I spent another night at the ER and had to visit the Fracture Clinic again the next day.
Having just returned from a wake I fell! The pain was greater than the initial injury… because I tore open the wound - sigh!
The team at the Fracture Clinic examined by hand my tendon and could not detect any breaks or gaps along the tendon. Oh please… please, please.
I’m back on Thursday to meet the team again. There has been a couple of areas of some light spotting of blood.
So for now I wait patiently hoping for the wound to heal nicely, postponed my PT sessions and hope for the best.
