As you all possibly know, I had my ankle surgery on June 18th to clean up scar tissue and tighten up some lateral ankle ligaments (with the Bröstrom procedure). My podiatrist deemed it a success! It has now officially been three weeks since surgery, and look how my ankle is healing! Even through the really messy pictures from 1-2 weeks after my surgery, my podiatrist said ,"Looking good."
The second week after my surgery, I moved back to my apartment. In the latter part of the week, I was able to get rid of the splint, and go into the boot with partial weight bearing on my ankle--one week ahead of schedule! Having a removable boot made it possible for me to spend time at the pool now, in supplement to spending time on the couch, this time watching Orange is the New Black.
This third week after surgery was spent voraciously keeping up with information from the North American Irish Dance Championships. QuickFeis was very helpful this year! I also got to participate in the lighting of fireworks!
I went back to the podiatrist this past Monday, and while I'm still in the boot, my goal for this week is to wean myself off crutches (still ahead of schedule!), and start physical therapy (I go tomorrow).
From the last day of June onwards, I have also been completing a daily workout routine (modified of course because of my injury), and I promise to share more about that with you in my next blog post!
Goal: Get rid of the crutches
