Friday marked 3 weeks since my Total Ankle Replacement surgery. Things are healing good and it is feeling better every day. I have started physical therapy to get what movement I can get back, and also to improve my muscle strength. Still no weight bearing but it is not really hurting. The scars are healing well.
There is always going to be someone who is worse off than you are. I see it all of the time. Some will never heal from their injuries. When I am feeling down, I think about those people. I know I will get better but I also know there will always be limitations. But when I look around me and see how others are suffering, I have to consider myself lucky.
