One Year anniversary

It’s been a year. Today is the one year mark! With regard to recovery I can honestly say the biggest milestones are at the 6 week mark, 9 week mark, and the 4 - 5 month mark. So weight bearing with the boot, two shoes and the end of physical therapy.
Getting back to tennis was my goal and I was able to do that at 5 months. I still need to get the screw out of my ankle because it is still poking through. It bothers me occasionally, but if it didn’t come out, it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
I can jump (including jump rope) but not really do a single calf raise on the repaired achilles. I’m still working on that in barre class. After a lot of running, people notice me limping. It’s not because it hurts, it’s just tight. After reading other’s stories, there is more progress that can be made just over a much slower time. I’m happy with what I’ve got.
What is the biggest lesson learned with this experience? Well I will say I had two big worries! One was that my tennis friends would forget about me. Some did, but those people really were not friends. The second was that I wouldn’t be able to exercise while injured. This is just not true. I really picked up weight lifting and there is core you can work on. And even moving around on one leg. Mobility is a blessing.
Lesson learned: Your friends won’t forget about you and you can still be mobile and workout!
My calf is smaller. It doesn’t bother me but you can really see it in this picture. I think it’s about an inch smaller when I checked about 5 months ago. And the other one probably got bigger doing more work. I have talked to a lot of people that are active including a physical therapist in sports and the recommendation is if you rupture your achilles and plan to go back to sports, get the surgery done ASAP after rupture. Your chances of re attaching the tendon so that it will still have the elasticity for sports is crucial.
This injury is recoverable! So chin up!
