Frustration With Slow Healing
Tuesday, July 15, 2014
Yesterday, when I woke up, my Achilles was very painful again. Sigh! Not again! I went to the Y and worked out. I could only do one set of physical therapy exercises afterward. I had a series of appointments so instead of being able to go home to rest after my workout, I had to plow forward. Thank goodness my last appointment was physical therapy!
My therapist stopped my at home therapy program for a few days to let me rest. I am fine with that. I had trouble sleeping last night because I couldn't stand to have anything touch my leg. I decided to go one step further today and didn't go to the pool to workout. Instead, I did some slow walking for an hour in Walmart. For the remainder of the day, I have been off my feet. Tomorrow, I will do a 45 minute workout in the deep water and go to physical therapy afterwards. I am hoping that this is just part of the healing process. This is getting real old, real fast!
