    I think it's pretty normal. I am about 9 to 10 weeks post surgery. I am walking without the boot but have a pretty bad lamp and a good bit of pain. I haven't started driving yet I think I probably could but we're having car issues so I just haven't tried yet

    I used a heating pad (on "Low") for my calf muscle. It helped. My PT suggested it. Whew!
