14 weeks and happy

14 weeks and 1 day post op.  I’m feeling good about the progress I’ve made over the past 2 weeks.  I am barely limping anymore when I walk and I’m feeling less pain during the day.  When I go to the pool, I’ll do single leg calf raises in about 3 foot deep water and simply walk back and forth pushing off with the front of my foot.  PT is twice per week and I’m getting stronger with more mobility each session.

My goal was to start jogging lightly by week 15.  That seems pretty realistic at this point, but I am a little scared to try it.  The last thing I want to do is re-rupture.  I see the doctor again at week 16 for my last checkup.  I’m hoping for good news.

I am ready to put this all behind me and get on with my life again.  It feels like everything has been on pause for the last 14 weeks while the rest of the world has moved forward.

Good luck to everyone.

  1. Great to hear you are progressing and also seeing your goal of jogging come into view! Also nice to hear you are in the pool — I am 4 weeks post-op and hoping to follow in your (ahem) footsteps! Best of luck!

  2. Thanks
