5 months post-op

Today marks the 5 months post-op.  I seems to be doing OK.  Depending on the day, i’m still limbing a little.  To tell the truth, I’m not happy with it but its part of the course I guess.  I’m continuing PT.  I still cannot do the single heel lift on my bad leg.  But my cliff is almost same size as the good leg. I can now go up and down stairs in normally.  We had a fire alarm on last Tuesday and I was able to walk down 5 flight in normal pace.  Since last week I’ve been going up and down stairs at work if its only 1 floor.  Having tried running yet but I have done a few fast pace short walk.

Yesterday, I stood around the most since my injury. Within a 6 hours period, I stood around for about 4 of those.  The last part I stood around for 3 hours.  Although I lean more weight on my good leg, by the end of the night, I was very tired and the achilles tendon was soar.   I did ice before going to bed and this morning is still soar.  I’m icing it now and will skip my daily exercise routine today.

Its about 4 weeks to my up coming trip to Asia.  Hope to continue to get better as I’ll be walking a lot during the trip.

Side note: Today is World Whiskey Day, so I’m going to drink with some of my buddies.

  1. I like what you said about going tiptoes on 2 and coming down on the weak one. I think water therapy has helped me in this a lot. At first, I couldnt even raise it at all, from a sitting position (not in water!) Later, I could barely do it up to my chin in water, now the water is down to my belly button, but I suspect the next part is harder as my belly is the biggest part of me!
