Almost 12 weeks post-op

So, I’m in the middle of Week 12 after surgery.

I’ve been continuing doing stretching and strengthening exercises (with resistance bands) at least twice a day, I’ve been going to the gym 2-3 times a week and swimming 2-3 times a week. Here’s where I am today and what I can now do:

  • Full squat with 50 kg bar
  • Single-leg squat (3-5 times) on the healing leg
  • started doing two-leg calf raises (body weight) and single-leg calf raises in the water

Swelling is still there, but it’s reducing. Limping is still there when walking normal pre-injury pace, but it’s clear to me why - you have to actually do calf raise walking normal stride =)

Other than that, I am planning to see rehab specialist later this week to see what they have to offer. I haven’t made up my mind on whether I want to do “aggressive” rehab or I want to stick to my doc’s plan of “quiet” healing until 6 months post-op. So far so good and I’m loving the rowing machine, which I never used before.
