12 week update

Filed under: Uncategorized — purple at 5:06 am on Saturday, September 21, 2013

I’m almost at week 12 post op now and seeing some good progress. Finally I can walk without my crutches  in bare feet  and shoes ! I did have to buy some new work shoes as none of my shoes fit my fat foot! I found some comfortable work shoes which have been ok.

I went to pool for first time today and I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed swimming so much. I could only manage breaststroke but at least I got some exercise. And I did all my new exercises in the pool which was so much better than struggling at home.

I am still getting some pain when walking and my calf strength is poor. But slowly getting there.

Have been pretty emotional this week, I think everything is just catching up on me. Funny that I’m making more progress but also crying more ha ha!

Getting lots of sewing done, that’s always good :)

Congrats on the progress purple…I’m eleven weeks out just behind your timeline, doing lots of walking and two legged heel raises, still limping but at least we are up and about, I guess!

Great to hear your progress, purple! The pool sounds like an excellent idea, and the breaststroke is nice and soothing even if it is slower than a crawl. I’m still having some mild pain when walking too, though smaller steps=better gait and less pain, in my experience. I think it just goes with the territory…
