Ankle Surgery Recap – Readers Workouts

There is a meme I would love to participate it hosted by Joy Weese Moll found here.  Unfortunately, I have not been doing much in the way of working out due to an ongoing ankle issue.  I “sprained” my ankle back in March and have been slogging through a myriad of treatments including surgical injections until I finally had surgery on June 20th.  I was under a no weight bearing order until today.  I am starting to rest some weight on the foot and flex the foot to stretch.

I switched doctors midway through this ordeal.  The first doctor did not read my films himself, he relied on the radiologist report so he missed the break in my ankle.  He had me walking on the ankle with the torn tendons off and on through all this.  He then gave me a “healing” Amniofix injection…excruciatingly painful…and did nothing that I could tell.  I got my act together and switched doctors and now finally am on the road to recovery.

I am starting this week to workout with the help of some youtube videos:

In four more weeks, I go back to see surgeon and hopefully start physical therapy.  My goal is to be mobile without crutches/knee walker/cane by September.
