I had a triple arthro as well as a tendon transfer in the front of the fut/ankle. Is it OK to tighten the tendon in the cast to pretend to move the fut up and down? I ask because I accidentally tightened it and much of the pain I felt in the front is gone. Its been just a little over 2 wks after the surf.
Ask dr's office. I had ankle reconstruction, tendon transfer, ligament rpr. I did move the foot, as much as I could inside the cast, mostly to alleviate pain/pressure. Dr office said it wouldn't hurt anything, as I wouldn't be able to move too much in a cast. They told me not to stand, as I was NWB.
I didn't have what you had done but I would wiggle my toes and like snowrunner said I would tighten up at night. I also crack my toes all the time so when I was in the splint I sometimes would push my toes down, forgetting that I was in a splint and it wouldn't work. I don't think you hurt the tendon transfer..but you could always call and see what your foot doc says.
