Day 115 - February 10th 2008

Well - it's been just over 16 weeks... i'm gonna finally rejoin the office on wednesday - by which time i'll be a day short of 17 weeks since i had my accident..

i've seen the physio for 3 sessions up to now.. he seems pretty pleased... and he's moved me on to differnet physio for more advanced exercises... something about throwing a ball at me while i'm trying to balance on the wobble board!! i find it hard enough as it is :D:D and agility ladder exercises - god knows if i'll still be able to do that.

He sounded pretty positive - and i'm managing to do some really small calf raises on the bad leg on it's own now - but it's incredibly hard..

it'll be nice to get back to work and settle into the routine again :D

Day 92 - 18th January 2008

Woop - i'm signed off from the orthapaedic clinic and shall be starting physio next friday at clifton hospital in lytham!

the doc said i could start doing some exercise to strengthen my calf again, plenty of stretching. No twisting or pivotting sports for another 2/3 months tho. Very impressed with my progess and didn't think the physio would need to do a lot with me.

i'm getting there, finally - it's been 13 weeks. i can start driving again now, but need to build up the miles to get used to my commute distance again.

hopefully with physio i'll be able to get rid of the limp and start jogging / running again.. can't wait to get back on court again!
