No crutches, no heel lifts, no limp when walking…no sweat! So good to be able to walk freely, calf still tight but doing stretches & calf raises everyday which is going well, hope to be doing more exercises in few more weeks…til then i guess

So far things are going well, 10 weeks after injury & 1 week out of cast I have PWB & wearing both shoes with heel lifts, still using crutches for support but can walk around without them, so progress is good. I’m doing upper body strengthening, leg curls & extensions, cardio on exercyle. Not doing any calf exercises until I see physio which will be in 2 weeks so enjoying sweating it out at gym. Tendon quite tender at times after I move around, bit of swelling in ankle which settles when I elevate leg & rest. Heel also tender so alleviate discomfort with softball (size 13 foot) which is great relief. Like I said, progress is good & I look forward to what each new day gives me.
Take care & happy healing!
