12 wks still limping

July 14th, 2014

Here I am again still compaining about limping and a sore ankle bone. I wish I could say things have gotten a bit better but that is not the case. I am still very tight even with PT x2 a week and ROM every time I sit down plus swimming exercises. I’m very discouraged at this point and I am supposed to go back to my actuall job in just a month. I don’t know that I will be able to walk fast enough when needed to. I try the stairs pretty often and I still have that horrible “I can’t bend my knee far enough down to make a smooth step” motion and usually end up going down sorta sideways! NO good, I know!

My scar gets massaged out really well at PT and it does feel better but the tighness has not gone away. I think I am becoming more concerned with the pain I feel on my actual ankle bone with any and all movements. I have been told that it is from all the weeks of no use and being stablized in a cast or splint which I see to be a good answer, but when, when is it going to stop feeling this way? I am not progressing at all and it is not good for my own morale and well being. I am a mom of a younger kiddo with a busy outdoor activity schedule and this has now depleated my happy self and only makes me see my future as a “handicapped” person at 36 years old! :-(

As you can see this has not been a good few weeks and I’m COMPLETELY over it.

    Try not to get disheartened, which I know is easier said than done. I am only 7 weeks in and have had some low moments but what I have noticed is that you can never tell from one day to the next when a glint of progress will happen. One day I felt like things were never going to change then literally the very next day it did.
    As for ankle pain , I feel it too. Feels like boot too tight or rubbing.These things take time so we need patience.Your progress seems good to me. Stay strong and remember it won’t be for ever!
