Hi everyone I had a triple arthrodesis of right foot and my Achilles lengthened on the 8th March 2018 . I was absolutely terrified about the length of the recovery process and the pain that I had read about in so many blogs . Well I just wanted to add my story as I know every one is different. I had a cast on for 7 weeks total non weight bearing then I had a boot for 7 weeks partial weight bearing . I got my boot of and within two days I am in my trainers full time . I will be 15 weeks tomorrow. I had a bit of swelling every night so I elevate and ice and in the morning it’s pretty well down to normal again . Regarding the pain I have had literally very little pain nothing that a couple of co codomel would not sort . My wounds healed really well and I can say the hardest part was the isolation and not being able to drive . My physio has said there is no reason now why I can’t go back to driving just need to practise my emergency stop lol 😂. So my journey has been slow but nothing like I had read in so many blogs . Positive blog 😘
