Week 6: 3rd Post-Op & Transition to FWB

Hi everyone!
Another Friday, another doctor’s appointment.
Week 5 Updates: Nothing major!
Got into the swing of things for my NWB PT appointments. Each appointment starts with manual therapy and stretching by my PT for about 20-30 minutes (I think our chatting makes it go a little slower but it’s super comfortable so I’m in no rush). Been [...]

Week 4: First Physical Therapy Appointment

Hi everyone, happy FriYay!

Week 3: 2nd Post-Op

Hi Everyone!

My surgery was exactly 2 weeks after my ATR due to schedule conflicts (my orthro surgeon said 2 weeks is the longest anyone should wait after the [...]

Injury + Pre-Op

Hi everyone!
I’m Vicky and ever since I ruptured my achilles a couple weeks ago, I’ve been reading through this website for info, advice, reassurance before I finally decided to start my own! I’m extremely talkative and overly-detailed so I hope my oversharing and long posts don’t overwhelm or tragically bore whoever comes across this.
