10 weeks post op ….

August 6th, 2008 by screwdriver

Md appointment today and he wants me on the boot for 4 more weeks but adjusted to 10 degrees dorsiflexion or you may call it 100 degrees . im at 0 degrees right now.
he also does not want me to go back to work yet - this is the part that killed me as i am getting bored at home and we could use the money .
he wrote precription for a more agressive PT approach .
ill do my best and try to be ahead and ill ask after 2 weeks if i can start work .

    Good going, it sounds like you are well on your way. I went to work a couple of times 2 days after my Op! Not good - foot swelled big so I stayed home for 2 weeks. I have a desk job and the docs were happy as long as I was static with my leg up. Im surprised the doc says “No” to work after 10weeks and you dont seem to have any complications (I havent read all your blogs); maybe you could get other opinons from different doctors about this? I dont get paid either if Im not in work so I know your concern about paying the rent and stuff. Good to see you are healing well and on your way to a well earned “parole” and release from the confinement of crutches and the clod-hopper :-) Keep it going, mate!

    No work still? That is crazy man. You aleady know my crazy story. My doc was the opposite, I was back to work 3 days after surgery. But I really only had to brave 4 weeks before my 2 month vacation break. Tough call though, but if I needed to pay the bills I think I would be back to work (depending my the type of job of course). I sure would not be working if I was an Alaskan Crabfisherman, Lumberjack or Delivery guy.
    Keep on truckin’ and keep us posted on your progress. Best of luck.
