Comment : Amazed by speed of recovery
Posted by Andrew Laming on Sun 12:16pm 11 May 2008
It's just over 12 weeks since the operation to insert a nail and I'm almost completely back to normal incredibly. I was allowed to start weight bearing about four weeks ago, first to one crutch and now walking, and cycling normallyish.
I had a session with a physio on Thursday, he identified an area of soft tissue damage and started work on that, immediatly my walking got straighter and the slight limp is subsiding.
I get the feeling I've been lucky. I also think the rapid rate of heal is down to the nail meaning I've not had a cast, so I haven't got any major muscle wastage to build back up. Time will tell whether there are any downsides to it other than bleeping at check in for ever more.
