I had my 8 week post op appointment today. The doctor told me to start trying to move my foot,rotating my ankle up and down. He also mentioned its to early for physical therapy. My next appointment is in three weeks, my op feels that with my age(36) i may not need therapy. My next appointment is june 1st,he will evaluate me then to see if therapy is needed.

    I had a total rupture on 2/19 also playing basketball. I started PT after 6 weeks. I think PT has been tremendously helpful - and I would encourage you to push for it.

    LindaF Thanks for the comment, I’m trying to push for it. My op was saying at first i wont need it, now with him saying we will see is a small victory for me. Next appointment i will push even harder for therapy.
