Well, as the title says - I went out in a pair of shoes today for the first time since my ATR on the 20th of February. That was 12 long weeks ago and I am happy to report that I managed to wair a pair of shoes to the local swimming pool today. It felt great… and was stiff and awkward and yes, my foot is still swollen quite a bit but it’s a significant step on the road to normality again.
I’ve been following the exercises from here since I managed to get my foot in a boot and it’s definitely going well. My ROM has improved steadily although my foot still feels weak and ‘odd’ but then I haven’t actually seen a Physio yet! My first session with an NHS physio is this Wednesday, 12 weeks and 2 days after the ATR. Hopefully I’ll be cleared to drive by next weekend, that is certainly my target.
Oh, and the shoes I wore today? They were the same pair of trainers I was wearing on the Badminton court when the rupture happened. It seemed appropriate somehow
