I went to my OS yesterday, and after having another xray, was told I did not have to come back unless I had a problem. We had a thorough discussion about my hardware, and decided as long as it was not causing undue problems, we would ignore it. That would allow me to avoid another surgery (ugh). I can feel it and at times it is really weird, but it does not seem to be causing pain.
I also had another PT session, and yesterday he made me try to "jog" for him. It wasn't the prettiest, but he thought it looked much better than he expected. That was so encouraging to me. He also had me jump rope. That was really difficult. The ankle hurt and my wimpy calf did not support me very well. I made it about 10 times at a pop. Not so good, but not bad for a first time. Anyway, I will be done with PT next week, which will be 21 weeks post break. That's hard to believe. All this started 21 weeks ago. What a journey this has been. This site has been a blessing, and the people have been so supportive and helpful. That is something truly good to come out of this! The journey continues ...
