1. Yesterday I went for what I thought was my last visit to the ortho. It was not. I have to go back again in 2 MONTHS.
He cautioned me about keeping the swelling down so it will heal —compression socks, ice, elevation. He said I could walk & run on the treadmill, use the elliptical and bike –BUT NO RUNNING OUTSIDE YET!!
He said I am ahead of his healing schedule but of course, not my schedule…it’s a long road to recovery…BE PATIENT.
I left the office depressed and headed to PT.
2. There I ran for 2 MINUTES straight on the treadmill (with 1 minute walking in between for a total of 20 minutes)!!
No real pain, just the usual stiffness which results in a lack of rhythm and a feeling of awkwardness.
