Comment : Re: Showers and Tendons
Posted by Annette on Wed 4:57pm 20 October 2004

The doc only gave me home PT excercises to do. I go back November 16th. When I asked him about PT, he said, "We'll see how you do." OK.

I wear the torture device as much as possible because I think it's helping to stretch my tendons. Slept in it last night. Fun! It's a lot better today, but HURTS LIKE CRAZY as I put it on.

I love the bathtub!! I find it easier to try to stretch while my foot is floating. I have very little ROM and about zero when it comes to turning the ankle inward.

I measured today and the bad calf is 2 1/2 inches smaller than the good. Sure looks like more!

I am once again grateful for the wheelchair because I don't think I could get in and out of the tub without it (shower doors).

Oh yeah, the area around my achilles is really swollen and hard. That's probably bad. I also discovered that I can't curl my toes even close to what the good foot does. Hmmm....normal?

Thanks for all your encouragement and support!
