So, my physio discharged me yesterday at almost 23 weeks.
It could have been down to the fact that due to some transport disorganisation on my part I had to cycle from work to physio, which is kind of out past home and off in the other direction towards the countryside. Still, upon arriving I was well warmed up, went on the stepper, did to two footed heel raises and some single leg heal ‘twitches’ (that’s all I could manage). Some balance board (while catching a ball) and some jogging on a small trampoline.
She had a look at my ankles during the raises and reckoned that my prognosis was good and it did not appear that I had healed long and in time would be able to calf raise again at some point once strength allows.
Declaring that she was not required any more, instructions were to keep cycling with my clips, it is calf intensive and made a massive difference to my recovery. Looking back, it took guts to get back on my bike but I am glad I stuck with it. Maybe if summer returns to the UK (we had 1 week last week) then I may do some evening rides.
Also, regarding my cramps, she said to stretch after exercise and before bed and that should help.
So, my journey continues, just under self care and I will continue to blog.
Hope everyone is well, I see we have quite a few new members, off to catch up on posts.
