I haven’t posted for a few weeks- glad to read that most of you are doing well! A little update… I started back to work after 3 weeks off. Worked 2 days and was just exhausted and took the next 3 off. The next week I was feeling so much better and was really ready to go.
At my 4.5 week check up I was moved to partial weight bearing. That was awesome! The next week though, there was a little swelling. I’m still in the boot, but started PT this week and what a difference!!! The PT has been amazing and has made my foot feel so much better. He recommended that I try to put a shoe on, which was so exciting. The boot has been so uncomfortable. I found a super light pair of tennis shoes that have a fabulous memory foam sole and put them on today. JOY! I will still wear the boot for the rest of the week but walked a little today and felt like such a normal person.
New things after starting PT and walking a little—- my right leg feels so weird. There’s been a decent amount of atrophy from ankle to calf, and I’m sure the rest of the leg must compensate. I’m interested to learn from others how their legs regained strength. Also when do you stop worrying that it’s going to rupture again? Lastly, does it ever go back to being totally pain free? It feels so much better, there is just always something little that kind of aches. I know it’s still a little soon,just wondering. Thanks everyone!
