Week 12 - Peroneal Tendon Surgery Recovery

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

I am so happy to report that I have been released from the walking boot. I have 6 weeks in a neoprene ankle sleeve to go. My foot is much weaker than I thought it would be. The sleeve is mostly to keep me from rolling my ankle until it gets stronger.

I was able to get into the pool and do laps yesterday for about a half hour before the foot got tired. No pain though. What a miracle.

I can do light walking for another 2 weeks and then the doctor said I could get more aggressive with it. It's nice to be able to walk my dog again. She's most happy about it. :)

The difference is amazing. Even though it's a long recovery, I would do it again in a heartbeat!
