First PT session - 6 weeks post-op

Filed under: Uncategorized — soccersnap @ 2:20 pm and

Well, I had my first PT session today…6 1/2 weeks post-op.  A lot of scar massage which felt both good and bad.  Actually, as my therapist got higher up my calf, it was actually worse than massaging my incision.  She did some ROM exercises and had me move my ankle joint up, down, side to side as much as I could and measured it.  She said I was really stiff - but this is no wonder as my foot has not been moved at all in 8 weeks.  I will be having physical therapy 3x week - MWF - during my lunch break as there is a PT office in my gym at work.  This is very convenient!  So I will be doing therapy MWF, and my upperbody/ab workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Those of you that read my previous post, know that I was having trouble with my good foot tendon.  It is still strained but I have been icing it almost everynight so it is definitely better.  My ATR foot is aching a bit already and I just had PT three hours ago…but it is a good pain I guess.  I am looking forward to making progress and hopefully will be able to bear some weight soon.  My husband is getting sick of having to do all the laundry and always carry everything for me, etc.  ;-)
