Dr checked me out and said I can put full weight on it. He adjusted angle on vacoped to 15° and said to go 10° in 2 weeks then flat at 4 weeks.

1 month post surgery

Month out from surgery. Dr said it’s healed nicely adjusted vacoped to 15 degrees and said I can put full weight on it. Heel is a little tingly still. Will stick with some some crutches assistance and ween myself off. Two weeks he wants me to go about 10° and in a month, flat

To vacoped or not to vacoped?

Just got home from doctor. Took off my splint and bandages from surgery. I have a script for a boot and heel lifts but I think I want to go the vacoped route. It’s expensive but if I heal faster, than worth it.

2 days after surgery

Decided to go surgery because it was a full rupture. Went very smoothly. Now the long road to recovery

iWalk instead of scooter? Oooops! Did I do it again?

I slipped and fell down earlier and I definitely either popped my other tendon or have a bad sprain.  I can’t believe this.

Anyone use this device.  This time around, I thought I’d give it a try.  I hate the scooter.

Week 13 + 2 days - slowly progressing

Wasn’t going to post because not much to report. Just doing it to. Be helpful to others behind me. My rom is almost all back. Still feel a little stiff especially in the morning when I first wake up. Trying to build strength. 2 leg calf raises. Still have to. Be conscious of my walk so I don’t duck walk.

Week 12 - All is well

Had a visit with the OS today. Doc said everything looks great and that I should just increasing my strength. I can probably just continue with the exercises but I probably don’t need to go to pt anymore. Doc was impressed with my walk. She said that I should might just ride the bike and elliptical at the gym and continue with the strength and stretching. I do ha e another day of pt scheduled but I may just continue on my own at the gym.
