19 weeks

Well, I’m at 19 weeks and 1 day since surgury. I am feeling pretty close to normal when I am walking. At times, I catch myself limping but I think that is more mental than anything. I am at a point where I am going a few weeks on my own and then I will check back with my PT. My ROM is continuing to improve. It’s not quite back to where my good leg is, but i’m sure it will come with continued stretching. I have not gained full calf stregnth back, but that will come with time. I still work on calf raises and and now I am doing more light plyometrics. I notice when I’m jumping, I heavily favor my good leg. It’s a start though

I am not at the point of jogging just yet. My PT recommened that I transition into that over the next month or so. I know that some of the others have gotten back to jogging earlier than me, but I figured that I’d rather be safe than sorry and I am in no rush to get back to a sport. A mental hurdle that I’ll have to cross soon.

I saw my doctor today and said I can transition back into everything over the next couple months. He said at 6 months I should feel pretty confident to do whatever on it, but it will continue to stregthen from 6 months to a year.

It’s been a long 19 weeks but i’m glad to be where I am. It will be great to reach the point where I can at least go out and shoot some hoops.
