9 months post PTTD surgery

I had fdl tendon transfer and calcaneal osteotomy w/2 pins that are staying in April. I wanted to see how others are doing at this stage.

I am doing fairly well. the limping is minimal and my stride is getting much better. The outside of my ankle where the osteotomy was done is still swollen, there are days when I have no pain and other days it is more annoying than pain. I really think I can feel the pins in my heel at times. it does not hurt, just feels weird.

I am still doing my at home PT excersises (i do forget for a few days but the stiffness reminds me to get on track). I don't think the winter cold and walking in the snow is helping too much.

Overall I feel I am doing good. I still have my down days but remind myself that the magic number is one year for healing. I hope everyone is doing well.
