As the new year is here I have been pushing and pushing myself to get my life back so to speak.
I have some frustrations that I have to vent off! LOL
Tomorrow: Jan 6th 8 weeks post op
Doing gas pumps constantly
Doing calf pumps/ heels up and down about 3 x's a day
resistant bands 3 x's a day
My frustrations is that I still can't push the gas peddle and the brake peddle on the car fast and deep enough just yet... makes me mad! I think I should be there by now.
Frustration #2: trying to bake cookies for my sister and can't stand for to long with out crying in some sort of pain/ surgery site/ heel (which has nothing to do with surgery!) and even my back ( I think from trying to ignore the pain in the foot so I'm tensing up the back)!
Frustration # 3 : Feeling like my tendon /ligament is popping so to speak after certain things i'm doing.....
took a nice walk down the road yesterday in a nice pair of KEEN boots and it hurt like a bi***!
So yea, I'm frustrated... I'm so ready to go and yet when I do go I can't go far.
And because the other foot was done in August and not fulling healed as of my right foot surgery , now that is super painful...
?And I have a high tolerance of pain.... !
? What were people with surgery of tendon/ ligaments or any type of ankle surgery time lines looking like before you felt the relief of no pain or minimal? Driving? Walking? Exercising? I know its pretty normal up to 10 weeks but man, this is just a long recovery ... and how do you know if this surgery worked or not? Has anyone had a failed go of it?
Thanks in advance!
