Just thought I’d add a few updated pics at 6-7 weeks for comparison.
The scar is looking great, all closed up and a bit less violently purple. My only issue is a sort of “bump” at the bottom of the incision that is taking a while to calm down and is aggravating as hell when wearing shoes.
And here’s the obligatory calf muscle comparison shot.
Last time I measured I had lost 0.4″ on the widest part of the right calf muscle which I think is at the lower end of the scale, but still fairly depressing.
I’m now pretty much out of the boot altogether, although I think I will still wear it for gymn workouts for a while, that’s something I need to check with my PT therapist.
At the moment not allowed to do much in the way of directly strengthening the calf, but I guess just walking on it is the best thing.
Hope everyone else is doing well and keeping spirits up.
