Hi, it's been a few weeks since i've posted on this site so i thought i'd just give you an update on how thing are going for me. I'm 16 weeks post op and started back into phased work 2 wks ago. Everything is going well, I still have a lot of stiffness but have been told that this should get better by about 6 - 8 months post op. Just before going back into work i started experiencing pain in the sole and heel of my foot, some days i could hardly put any weight on it but i found out that if you fill an old squash or pop bottle with water and freeze it you can then roll your foot back and fore over the bottle and this greatly reduces the pain, i just thought i'd share this in case anyone else has the same problem. As so many people have talked about the recovery from this op is so long and you really feel you will never get back to fitness, but with a lot, and i mean a lot of patience and PT you will come out on the other side and the feeling of walking pain free is wonderful. I wish you all a full recovery and i hope i'll be able to post again in a few months with another update.
