  1. Congrats! Sounds great! Enjoy the holidays and watch out for the special egg nog that might make you lose balance ;)

  2. YAY! I am going to try showering standing up over the next few days…it’s funny how this simple thing has become a new goal!

    Happy Holidays!

  3. Sounds great to me! I’m also glad they got you a boot instead of multiple casts, and got you out of it promptly too.

  4. I was in multiple casts for 4 weeks. Then boot for 2 weeks. Now shoes with lifts. Small things add up !!!

  5. Donna, when we’re able to shower standing up, it’s a tiny thing. When we’re not, it’s enormous! One good mental trick is to focus on what we’ve got, and not just on what we don’t have. It takes effort, but it’s worth it.

  6. This friday will be 7 weeks post op and it has been a gruesome process. I rather go back to iraq for another deployment than deal with this. With that said I will get tjrough this and so will everybody else. I feel like my doc is on the conservative side. I will be starting pt next week, although I have been stretching and massaging my tendom to try break some scar tissue down. The surgery area is still hard and im seeing that this is normal.
    well this site has helped me and would like to follow people that are couple weeks ahead of me so I know what to except.
