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!

    It is important to listen to your body and not demand more from it that the body can handle.

    I feel for you. I'm having problems with Achilles tendonitis right now. Wouldn't wish the pain on my worst enemy. Don't push yourself too hard.
