4weeks Postop

Filed under Uncategorized

Yesterday was my 4 week post op follow up.  I had little expectations about my next phase of treatment, but I was pleasantly surprised.  My ortho informed me that I could leave in boot and partially weight bearing.  I elected to recast at neutral and ordered the Vacocast shown on this site.  We also have a pain management doc who offered to administer BOTOX injections into plantaris muscle to help with my only real pain issue, muscle cramps.  It is said to also help flexibility which will help with rehab. I am still weighing my options.  It was great to see that I could flex and extend and more importantly I’m making process!  If anyone has had experience with Vacocast or BOTOX please weigh in.   Meanwhile my status is upgraded to PWB baby!!!!
