One Year Anniversary!

This week marks my one year anniversary of having a heal spur removed and my AT debulking. I feel great! Sometimes I just stop and move my foot and am so excited that I don’t have any pain.  It is such a blessing! I have started doing Body Pump and was nervous about doing squats [...]

8 months post op and numbness

I am 8 months post op insertional achilles tendonitis surgery. I have been doing great, but in the last two weeks my heel has started feeling numb. It feels like I am walking on a lopsided pad. I am pretty sure it is a nerve being punched or something like that. It is not painful, [...]

4 months post op

I am 4 months post op. I had a hysterectomy a month ago and ended up with an infection that resulted in another surgery two weeks ago. I have not been able to do much the last month because I have been so weak. I thought the rest would have been great for my foot. [...]

Almost 3 months post op

Cast off and shoes

I am so excited that I am finally getting my cast off tomorrow! It almost feels like Christmas!!!  The time has actually gone by pretty quickly. Other than the one incident of cast anxiety I had due to a too tight cast, it hasn’t been too bad. I am hoping I won’t have to sleep [...]
