13 weeks out from injury…

August 12th, 2013

I haven’t posted in awhile, since the summer has been keeping me busy.  I’m still keeping up with 2-3 times a week PT; she’s doing ultrasound and manual therapy on my calf, Achilles and foot.  I also do 10-15 minutes on the recumbant bike, light stretching, leg presses and some ankle raises.

I did visit my ortho doc last week and he seemed concerned about the lump that developed over the last week or so.  He mentioned that he thought I may have stretched it a bit too much.  He wanted me to increase my PT and of course mentioned the possibility of surgery.  Of note, I did re-injure my foot - I twisted the injured ankle on 7/27 and had to go back in the boot again.  And now I’m in heel lifts again!  Yay for me!

I’ve taken a picture of the lump on my heel.  I’m a bit freaked out by it, to be perfectly honest.  Have any of you seen a lump like this and should I be as concerned as I currently am about it?  I do have slight pain when walking and I’m still walking with a limp.  However, I have mentally prepared myself to be walking with a limp for at least 6 months or so.  I’ll keep more updates on my page, as I feel like this is where I’m surrounded by like minded people!

I hope everyone’s recovery is going as well as it possibly can :)  Posting my picture now…

    I can’t see your picture but I had some swelling and soreness last week. The Dr. recommended that I go back in the boot (with lifts) and limit my walking until it got better. He thought it was just inflamed.

    I’m on the same “limp preparedness” schedule. I’ve got six months but hopefully I can kick it sooner.

    I always have my boot on hand! After I twisted my ankle a couple of weeks ago, I was so happy to have it. Right now, I have 1cm lifts in each shoe.

    Are you in the boots most of the day or just a few hours? I’m also icing and that seems to help with the inflammation, swelling and bruising around the lump.
