Happy 4th week post-op visit

This morning I had my fourth week post-op doctor appointment and he gave me approval to be 25% PWB and some non-boot foot movements.  It might not seem like much, but I was worried that he would say a few more weeks NWB.  Just to be able to put any weight at all on my surgery leg felt like heaven.  He also took a good examination of my Vacocast boot, and seemed to be impressed.  Looking forward to physical therapy in a few weeks.  Big concern is the long-term outlook for strength and range of motion in the repaired Achilles.  Well, one step at a time.

  1. Congratulations on the milestone. It is such a good feeling to move from NWB to PWB. You should see progress each week now as you move through your recovery. I started PT at week 6 and they will take it slow to take you through the rest of the healing process by starting with ROM.
