Last week my therapist gave me the exercise of standing on both feet and transferring my weight back and forth. This week I can now stand on ankle #2 with about 40% weight without the boot. With the boot on, I can stand 50/50...pretty even. The biggest difference is that I don't feel like I want to die from the pain like I did just a couple of weeks ago. As far as my theraband exercises go...I found my blue band that I was given with ankle #1, and have started using that instead. It is a step more difficult than the green one I was given last week, so it's a bit more challenging.
The best news is: I stopped taking all my medicines for my ankle...except on PT days. The 24/7 pain I was feeling for the first few weeks has subsided and now it just hurts when I work it or if it isn't elevated for a while. Oh, and the redness I was worried about last week seems to have gone nowhere...thank God! My incision is a bit red all around, but in a normal, healing way. Still, it looks gross :)
