Recovery Time and Rehab

Published by roxygal9 under Uncategorized

So I believe I still have at least 1 more month of NWB. In a cast and then get a boot in 2 weeks. Right after Christmas great! But doc said no walking still even with the boot. What does it feel like when you finally are able to put weight on it for the first time? Does it hurt real bad? What about rehab, what do I have to look forward to (sarcasm intended)….

Achilles Question

Published by roxygal9 under Uncategorized

Just had surgery forĀ a partial tear sustained, also had to have a lengthening done. NWB for at least 2 months. Howerver, I accidentally stepped on it the other day, and it hurt so bad well I got sick. How do you know if you hurt it more and need to get it checked out? The pain has lessened but still there. I hadnt had pain since a few days after the surgery so i am a little worried. Also I get my stitches out soon, does it hurt?
