10 exhausting painful weeks of lisfranc surgery recovery are finally behind me!
This week my physical therapist told me I am doing too much physical therapy. I have been going to the HydroWorx pool 6 days a week, and taking land physical therapy 2 days a week. In addition I have been doing my at home exercises twice a day and most days I have been practicing walking in our pool at home. By Friday it was painful to do anything at all related to walking.
I have been forced to take the week-end off from all therapy and give my foot a chance to calm down. In my eagerness to be normal again, I have overdone my recovery and have pushed too hard, too fast. I have to turn down my enthusiasm and admit to myself I cannot speed up the healing process. Patience with my foot has been the hardest thing for me to learn during this arduous recovery phase.
