Nothing new really, my ankle is regaining its mobility, the foot isn’t hurting as much - the pain that is there is probably down to the plantar fascii (did I spell that right?) having shrunk quite a lot whilst my foot was in the equinus position for so long. I can walk a couple of miles now - I’ve discarded the crutches - and only have a slight limp at the end of it. Having said that, I should really elevate it more at the end of each day.

The calf on that side is very weak still. I’ve been cleared to use the stationary bike, I’ve got step ups and lunges to do to strengthen the muscles. All in all though, recovery is going along faster than I expected. The only down at present is a lump of scar tissue just below the top of the operation site. I’ve been massaging it trying to break it up but no joy so far.

So, just keep on keeping on. Could be the motto for all of us I suppose!!

So true! My lump is finally starting to go away but the achilles is still thicker than the other side. Great to hear from you.
