Re: 10 months after brostrum - seeing an ankle specialist ....
I'm doing well I think. It's hard to tell this early. I'm slower to weight bear this time around, and I've had more pain. But it was a more invasive surgery I think... Merging two tendons. But today I did 4 hours of housework (happily and yes, some sitting) mostly on one crutch and a little FWB and I'm ok! I was wicked swollen but I'm not really hurting more than usual. I am going to take it easy (if I can while teaching!) tomorrow so I don't push it. I'm more hopeful today than I was last week. I was really down since I couldn't weight bear much. Thanks for asking!
