First assessment for therapy.

I had my therapy appointment today, it was really just an assessment. The PT was against what has been going on with my doctor.  I am at 11 weeks post op and i haven’t done anything besides slightly raise my foot. My OP said i may be good,  and  able to go back to work after 4 weeks of therapy and i can put on a regular shoe and walk unassisted now. The PT examined me and realized, the range of motion of my foot is no where near where it needs to be for me to put regular shoes on(i still have wedges in my walking boot). My calf muscle has totally atrophied, and my leg muscles are weak from being on crutches since February. In 4 weeks or a little less i should be able to put the crutches down. He said i will need more therapy than 4 weeks. My dorsiflexion is at 0 and my planterflexion is at 7.I am very happy for this PT i finally feel like someone is on my side, looking out for what’s important…. My health
