I'm a little over 5 weeks post-op and had my first PT session yesterday. My concern is the PT doing more damage than good. PT office has no paperwork from my dr. other than what I handed them (basic orders) and is just going on what I have told them. I was in a cast for 10 days and have been in a boot for about 4 weeks. FWB as tolerated, boot to be worn 24/7 until next dr. appt.
I know PT is going to be a little rough but should the PT be yanking on my foot to get it to move?? I moved it as far as I possibly could and she thought I was "sandbagging her" (her words) and she grabbed my foot and pulled hard enough on it that the pain made me come up off the table. Is this normal? I know I need to loosen up everything but I sure as heck don't want to undo everything my ortho repaired.
