Well after yesterdays frustrations it’s been a good day.
This morning I had my third follow up with my surgeon at 1 month post op and so far everything looks good. He confirmed that it was ok for me to go to zero degrees boot angle (a bit late now given yesterday’s shenanigans). Also he declared himself very happy with the state of the tendon, after grabbing and manhandling it with enough force to scare the hell out of me!
So I have another 2 weeks in the boot after which I can start to walk in normal shoes. Like many other people’s experience he did not exactly give me detailed instructions on this, just go out & walk on it. He also okayed me to start PT which is great so I’m hoping that the PT guys can give me more guidance on whats appropriate.
I will read through all the material posted on the blog, but would appreciate any feedback that people have on 2 shoe do’s and dont’s?
Here’s the scar at 4wks post op for comparison to earlier snaps.
