I hope I'm not repeating, I've never sought out a forum before, BUT, this ankle business is way different. I'm 2 weeks 2 days post op in a boot now, NWB with my next appt 8/8/17, and concerned about progress. I do ROM exercises intermittently as ordered during the day and I just tried to touch my knee to the wall with my toe against it with success. (Yay?) I want to walk yesterday and run tomorrow. I've never been off work this long or lost my independence in any way like this. Nonhandicapped people in the handicapped stall, people saying things like-it sucks to be you, having to have a no leak mug for my coffee to carry it around, and man do my hands hurt from crutches. I fell off my scooter at the train station the other day so I've decided to use that in house mostly. Rant over for that, thank you. I guess a good question I have is how long for people to get the muscle mass back in your affected calf, because mine is considerably atrophied after 2 weeks. Range of Motion (ROM) takes how long for anyone else? How is your progress near my stage? I'm curious and, I guess in need of a little reassurance at this point.
