8 week post op visit

May 10, 2013 |  Tagged , |

So, doc was happy with my range of motion and thickness of achilles. Daily alphabets paying off. Starting PT next week which is a good thing as I’m really getting antsy. Still no weight bearing or real strength training without the boot; ok by me as I’m terrified of rerupture. I can’t wait to not be thinking of my Achilles all the time.

I’m also getting a little better walking in the vacocast but get tired pretty quickly and switch to modified crutch walk. I would definitely recommend a shoe even up for other foot. So much easier to walk and easier on hips and knees. Fortunately now good enough at stairs to have moved back into my own place. My poor friends have been stuck with me for almost 2 months. Planning to test the swimming ability of the boot this weekend.
