PWB, 2 shoes - 10 weeks non-op :)

Hi all

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!

    Sounds good, if (as you know) on the slow side. The DVP is resolved? Can you (or the Doc) tell for sure? I haven’t read much about it. . .

    hey Norm

    I guess it is slow, didn’t have much say in last 10 weeks with casting & all, but happy to be in shoes & have PWB. Still have DVT & will be on meds until Xmas now, so thats ok. Not much else going on with DVT, just got to be disciplined with meds & hopefully make full recovery.

    Cheers…
