Exercise After a Modified Brostrom
I had a Modified Brostrom done in May and my doctor told me that he had to reconstruct all ligaments and tendons on that side of my foot. He also told me that because my ATFL was damaged and had to be reconstructed it was similar to the ACL in the knee and that I takes about 9 months to be able to run after having surgery on the ACL. I am trying to lose weight and he told me that he wouldn't recommend me running or doing lunges or any jumping for at least 6 months. I am at a loss as to what I should do to exercise. It has only been almost 4 months. I don't knonw if I should try to run or if I should just wait until the 6 months is up. My question is what has anyone that has had this procedure done to exercise? And also has anyone else been told that by their doctor? Thanks for any help or advice!
P.S.: I don't see him again until 6 months post op.
