Yesterday marked 9 weeks post-op and everything is creeping forward. I’ve been in 2 shoes for 2 weeks and have seen a lot of improvement. I’ve lost my limp but still have a pause in my gait. The PT said this is normal. I can stand in the shower comfortably and my swelling is controllable. Last week I travelled with my family to Sedona, AZ to visit my dad. Although I couldn’t participate in the hiking and biking I would have if not injured, I was able to go on short walks, visit the zoo, shop, go out to eat, etc. I finally felt “part of things” again. This week I’ve started back teaching part time and will return to full time next week. Mentally this was so important for me. I tell you it was a looooong 2 months being stuck at home, not working or driving. I threw away all my “comfy” clothes I wore while at my worst and I refuse to sit on the part of the couch where I spent so much of my time. You can actually see a big indentation from where I would lay! PT is going great. She had me start calf raises, weights, and the wobble board. I’m up to a whopping 2 mph on the treadmill! :)) So…things are slowly and surely improving.
