Here we go…Long road ahead

I ruptured my AT on Nov 10 playing basketball. I had surgery a week later on the 17th. At first I thought I had just sprained my ankle but after several days I decided to go to my family doctor where he did x-rays. After everying came back normal that is when he determined I had a ruptured AT. Since surgery I have had minimal pain. Mostly just dealing with swelling and learning to walk with crutches. I had a cast on for 2 weeks post op until my first follow up where they removed the stitches and then they placed another cast on for one more week. When I started therapy they told me to start using a boot and was given the go ahead to begin PWB still using crutches. The first therapy session was a little rough on me. During range of motion excercises I started getting real light headed and started getting blurred vision for about 10 minutes. Putting a cold towel on my face seemed to help. Curious if anyone else has experienced that. Since then I have not had any other related problems during therapy.
