Wednesday, February 2nd, was eighteen weeks post-surgery. I had slowly been getting back into my exercise and physical therapy routine after my illness.
On Thursday my physical therapist noticed that my ankle had more range of motion and my Achilles tendon was not as tight. Maybe my "week off" did some good!
By Monday I was fully back into my routine and working up my strength again. There hadn't been too much change in my ankle strength or discomfort, except that some exercises hurt a little because I hadn't done them in a while. The numbness and tingling still persisted, some days better than others. I knew those sensations would last for a while.
