PT #2 Update

Had my second PT appointment today at 12 days post op. Session consisted of massage and movement of the ankle, as well as 10 minutes on the bike with my boot on. Last time I was in socks on the bike, but in the boot it felt safer and I could push things a little more and get a better workout.

They measured my dorsiflexion and I was at 0 degrees.

My home workouts have been lots of ankle ABCs and general foot movement in the air.  Feels good to be moving the ankle out of the boot and getting the blood flowing down there.

As I’ve read through the various blogs and other articles here, I’ve decided that I’m going to supplement my recovery with the following:

  • Vitamin C - been using this since 2 days post op.  I take a packet of Emergen-C 1000 MG in the morning
  • Multivitamin
  • Muscle Milk Protein - for the essential and non-essential amino acids
  • Jello - I read that the gelatin might aid in tendon health

We will see how it all goes!

  1. Keep it up! I think the stationary bike really helped me. Good luck and keep it up
