Well on Nov. 18 I had my first physio appontment. I found a great therapist and she has already started me on strengthing excercises on all the muscles except my calf! Not allowed to do any strenght training on that for another 3 weeks. She definitely will not be easy on me which was apparent when she did the massage to break-up the scar tissue! OUCH! She was very impressed with the scar and says it is the nicest scar for a ATR surgery that she has seen! (whatever the heck that means) Doesn’t appear to be a whole lot of scar tissue and there is really only one spot at the base of the scar that really hurts. Heading back to see her on Wednesday and I know she will have alot more planned for me! Already the appointments are an hour and a half long! It will be a costly venture as my insurance will not cover it all and I know it will be a long process, but well worth it! Get to start walking in 2 shoes in one week! Super nervous! Seems crazy to start walking without the boot! Here’s hoping that it will go great!
I really hope to be back doing some winter activities before the season is over! I usually curl alot in the winter and would like to definitely get some games in! I am sure that some of you don’t even know what curling is, but we love it in Canada! Would also love to get on the ice skating with my daughter’s hockey and ringette teams! Take care everyone and make sure you keep updating!
