4 weeks post op / Physical Therapy

Posted on June 11th, 2013 in Uncategorized by sfce

Today is 4 weeks post op. Over the last week I have been PWB as I slowly walk around in my boot with crutches. I had been doing some ROM and got a lot of movement out of the foot but the atrophy has taken pretty much every muscle in my leg.

Yesterday was my 1st PT session, she basically critiqued my PWB walk and went over the exercises I must complete every day. I am now on schedule for PT twice a week for 7 weeks. Seems I have been so consumed with healing and diet that I have neglected the exercises.

My wound has pretty much closed up and there is only a small scab left on the wound. I am still experiencing the sharp stinging pain and some throbbing in the area. The swelling is down, even though I have only iced a few times. I will continue to do the exercises daily, and work on my ROM while following the UWO protocol!

    You are not alone in the atrophy department. I’m not sure how much PWB or FWB in a boot is going to help that. My leg still looks pretty limp but my ROM is improving little by little. Has PT changed your daily exercise?
