I’m coming up on almost 3 month time since breaking my surgeons good work. I am at 2 shoe phase, walking around pretty well. Thompson test is strong now, good foot flexion with calf squeeze. Main problem is daily ankle swelling from working on my feet. I have had good success with a compression stocking given my dad while in hospital for surgery years ago. It magnifies the ice and elevation therapy exponentially. It really helps that numb feeling you get at the heel and heel bone areas.

My numbness in the heel area is getting less, tendinosis feeling at the top of the heel bone is still present and inflamatory stiff ankle joint still there too. Norm as usual has great insite, I was gently trying to do a one legged calf raise and was getting a lot of heel pain, thanks for relating you learn you shouldn’t do that to soon or often because it hurts. I thought it was something I should try several time a day. i.e. farmer story.

I’m just glad being a bit of an experiment for my doc, no surgery on a re-torn, not fully healed ATR is working well. Shows not all things need cut on to heel. My 2 main concerns still are strength of tendon and length of tendon and both are ok so far. 2 weeks to next check up by doc.
