Filed under Week 5

My Physical therapist gave me a list of exercises to continue to do at home and I am no longer in their care. So 5 weeks and 1 day after surgery and I am on my own! I have a noticeable limp for now but I am working on it. In therapy today I raised up on the toes of both feet. It was more mind over matter in a way. It hurt a little bit but I got over it. I will still keep it slow and pace myself my chart says heel raising at 6-8 weeks. So I am going to back off that one until next week. When you get to this point after surgery its hard to get your brain back in the mode that it is ok to use the muscles again. Keep working my friends and the you will see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have a wedding to do this Saturday the 24th and I will post on how that went as well.
