    OK, time for another update.

    After the cast, I had to wear one of those big clunky boots. Which I thought I was doing pretty well in. Even though I was told to still stay off my foot (like that happened). But I tried to behave as best as I could.

    Started PT on the 12th. Of course got yelled at for doing to much on it (I didn't think it would've been obvious). Anyway, was given excercises and for once in my life I ACTUALLY did them like I was told to!!

    This past Tues (18th), I was told I could finally take the boot off and wear the splint

    Went back today, and . PT was finally able to get the surgery report from the Dr. Turns out I didn't have reconstructive ankle surgery, I had MAJOR reconstruction surgery. Basically, I was under the impression that a tendon holder inney thing was stretched and a tendon wasn't where it was supposed to be. WRONG!!

    Things where "blown up, shredded, and no longer present". The tendon sock was shredded, the actual tendon had played leap frog with it's partner (it's was supposed to be in the back...it was waay in the front), the tendon flap that holds the other ones in place was stretched the farthest they've seen, they had to remove 1/2" of the flap and re-cut an insertion to my foot bone, tuck it in there, and suture it to the bone somehow, the entire ankle capsule had blown apart, AND a larger groove had to be cut in my ankle bone than originally thought.

    Which means that even though the PT & I thought I was doing good, we have to slow things WAAAAAYYYYY down

    To make things worse, I guess there's a condition where your nerves get hyper sensitive at a scar and it's happening to me. As well as the muscles & tendons at the bottom of my foot are ticked off with everything going on that they are starting to cause problems.

    I can still wear the splint when I'm at work....for now. Otherwise it's back to the boot.

    THIS SUCKS!!!!! Now my summer is totally shot for sure

    Oh, wow that does suck horribly. But, just think, here before you know it, you'll be healthy and sound again as opposed to having pain and trouble all the time.

    Sorry that things are worse than you thought, but all you can do now is loo forward and do everything that you can to get a great recovery, I know it sucks, but the better you follow the rules now, the quicker you will heal.
