5 Week Update

Hello All

Had a new computer installed and lost my Achilles Blog details but have now found most of them so here is the latest update after 5 weeks. Generally all is going well. After the problems of the first two weeks struggling around on crutches I was fitted with a lightweight caste and a SHOE!! on which I was told I could start weight bearing. This transformed my mobility, and gave me great confidence to just walk around the place without fear of “falling”.

On the 20th Dec I visit the hospital where they will remove the caste and I believe fit me with a boot.?

The Achilles itself and the foot generally have been fine with no side effects or pain at all. I now cannot help thinking about  the end  of Jan? when hopefully I will be able to start driving again! and exercising / physio to try and recover some real mobility OH and of course starting a little gentle “putting and chipping”!!

Hope you are all recovering well.

  1. Sounds great, birdieboy. Exercise and physio could start a lot sooner than end of Jan, if you can get the pro’s to agree and provide services. Ankle exercises can start as soon as you can get your leg free, e.g., from a boot.

    BTW,I’m getting a small but ugly error on your site:
    “Fatal error: Call to undefined function ah_recent_posts_mu() in /srv/www/achillesblog.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/default/right_sidebar.php on line 89 ”
    New to me, maybe you or Dennis know what it’s about?

  2. Hmmm, yes. I think I know what is causing this error. I’ll fix it tonight when I get home.
    Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Fixed the recent comments section on individual blogs. Please let me know if you see any other issues. thanks.

  4. Birdieboy that is some name.
    I’m a fellow golfer from Ireland. Where alI courses are frozen right now. Just got my cast off last Fri after 8 weeks. Amazingly I walked (v slowly) out of the hospital. Didn’t expect that.
    Chipping and putting. I’d say within 2/3 more weeks I’ll start. By mid Feb which would be 15/16 weeks post op I want to be hitting full shots and back playing a few holes.
    We can do it!!
