One surgery down!
So, my achilles tendon has been repaired. This is a picture of my splint with bandages.
The stitches came out last Friday. I am in an orthopedic boot but I still can't walk on it. When I wear the boot I can put some weight on my foot. Yesterday I had the boot adjusted. I had to try it out at the doctor's office. That much walking made my foot ache for the rest of the day.
I'm stuck at home for at least another week. I had hoped that I could walk around with this boot like I did with my last boot. But no, I have to sit around and watch TV, knit, read or play on the computer. What a drag!
How come when you get to spend lots of time at home you are too sick or in too much pain to accomplish anything useful?
