10 Weeks

August 18, 2009

Infection responding reasonably well to erythromycin.  Cellulitis is all gone and there is less stiffness in the ankle joint.  Wound still has not completely closed, but there is a healthy looking scab over the last little open bit–about the size of a match-head.  Making acceptable progress on strength.  Discontinued PT.  Have been taking 8-10 mile bike rides which feel completely normal–not really working the tendon or calf muscles as much as I would like.  Can do a single leg heel lift with just a little cheating–best indication yet that the surgery actually accomplished something.  See MD in a week for follow-up on infection.  Will try again for clearance on some light running.
