11 Weeks Post Op

Filed under: Uncategorized — shep @ 6:23 pm

It has been a very long time since I have posted.  I am now 11 weeks post op and feel great.  I have been out of the boot for 3 weeks and every week it gets better and better.  Looking back it goes by very fast.  I have a slight limp, but will start PT on the 13th (they’re a little backed up) and that should get rid of that.  I have minimal swelling, complete range of motion, no pain, and no scar issues.  I have been cleared to play golf and was able to stretch it far enough today to feel a good stretch in my calf.  Anyway, I feel like I am very lucky to have had such a good experience thus far.  I would say the biggest issue is the scar tissue around the achilles, but even that seems to be getting looser and going away a little bit.  My goal is the one legged calf raise.  Once I can do that I will feel like I’ve reached a milestone.  I’m not sure if it helped or not, but I was in the boot the whole time and never in a cast.  I have a friend that is two years post op and says that my leg looks like his after six months.  I also have more range of motion.  I think I am one of the lucky one’s.  I hope that everyone is doing well on their journey.  I will try to share some of my good luck with those that are struggling.  Until next time…..keep your chin up.
