Question on TA recovery

I've went back to work last week. While I was planning on half days, I ended up spending more time there on my feet than I would have wished. I've noticed that my Achilles tendon (I think) has been especially sore for the last several days. I alternate between wearing my walking boot and my athletic shoe with a new orthotic. Has anyone else experienced a sore Achilles? I'm 4 1/2 mos. since surgery and using a cane with a little walker action at night. I'm getting by but this "new" pain has been a bit of a pain.

Re: Question on TA recovery

Linda, DEFINATELY! that was my first new soreness after i started walking in shoe. it is totally normal, my arch got real sore too. it will go away once it gets used to walking again. ice, massage, stretching calf (as much as ankle allows).

and i too alternated between the boot and shoe for a while until the boot becaame more uncomfy than comfy.

Re: Question on TA recovery

Thanks Shelley. That's what I was hoping. I thought you might have written something about it before. It's so good to have others that have been through this while you're experiencing it. I went on my first shopping trip for work today...man, am I beat!

Re: Question on TA recovery

Going back to work!!!! OK, only 2 days a week @ 4 hrs a day, but I need this. I am still in the boot, but with the Dr.'s permission, practicing walking with the walker and shoe. My tendons are very tight and painful, and my foot turns a beautiful color purple when down too long. I will be wearing the boot to work (my husband driving) and going to take ice packs just in case. Anything else?

Re: Question on TA recovery

Try and get your foot up if you can at work. It will help with the swelling. This is what I have been dealing with because I find my foot swells when I sit a long time.
Enjoy working!

Re: Question on TA recovery

Well most of us often complained about work....now we cannot wait to get back!!

I guess these surgeries are true life lessons. Congratulations on your recovery!
