Update - 13 weeks P-Op

Well I went to the doctor today. He is VERY impressed with my strength and ROM. He told me I could start swimming and kicking with both feet and to also start on the stationary bike (so now at least my cardio is slowly come back LOL). He gave me an ankle brace to help with stability and any sudden movements. He also told me that my AT is still recovering and healing so not to get on the treadmill or climb ladders as this would put increase stress onto the AT.

The pain I was having (in my last post) is all normal pain he said. He said with being inactive for so long it will take time to build strength back into my leg. I go back in 4 weeks and he said my limp should be gone by then. He said if it is not gone by then we would look at some PT but overall he is very happy with where I am. He also added standing calf raises BOTH feet at the same time. No single leg calf raises yet.

No matter where you are in this process, if I can give one piece of advice: BE PATIENT! I am the biggest type A personalities you will meet and very active, but id rather sacrifice 4-5 months so that I will still be running in 5-10 years. Listening to the doctor is the best thing you can do. You paying all this money to get it right THE FIRST time!

Happy Recovery!

  3. One suggestion I have is do go to PT. My PT guy found that I had a loss of strength in my glutes as well as my leg so he had me focus on exercises for both. It was pretty striking how weak my surgery side glutes were too. It wasn’t something I noticed since I had learned how to compensate for it with other muscles.
