So I have previously posted a few questions regarding recovery from a peroneal tendon repairment.
My current question is just that I might have to wait out for physio but was adviced by a nurse that I should start asap (not to mention I do sports and I am planning to start training on the next season if possible). So I removed my stitches on monday, gave it 2 days more rest and then started weight bearing.
First day with crutches and no problem (using a CAM boot)
Second day I ditched the crutches since I don't have any major pain when weight bearing, sure some slight soreness and I feel a sharper pain if I move too harshly or try to move my ankle a bit inside the boot. ( I am only walking a few minutes at a time, since my ankle swells slightly with how hot the boot gets).
I have also started doing exercises I have done previously in PT such as toe curls with a towel, range of movement with my foot going up and down, sideways too as much as I can without major pain. Of course the ankle and tendon feel pretty sore and some exercises hurt little, but I can already some improvement in the range of movement.
So other than what I have been doing do you have any other tips or exercises? (Oh I am 22 and did track actively).
