|14 Weeks post lisfranc surgery|
Yes! At 14 weeks post lisfranc surgery I can finally bend my upper foot and put half my weight on my recovering foot while standing on tip toes!!!
Here is a list of what else I CAN do at 14 weeks following lisfranc surgery:
My recovering foot can bear 100% of my body weight while standing one legged.
I can easily walk upstairs without pain and without holding on the the banister while in sneakers.
Every 3-4 footsteps are completely pain free, without using a cane and when walking in a sneaker.
I am completely pain free while walking in a boot.
I can stand pain free for up to 10 minutes in bare feet and even longer in sneakers.
I can manage walking around my living area in sneakers without a cane or a limp when my foot isn’t tired.
I rarely wake up at night with foot pain
My pain level rarely goes above a level 4 no matter what I do!!!
I am pain free all the time when sitting with my foot elevated.
I only ice 1-2 times a day now. Sometimes I even forget!!!!!!!!
My recovering foot fits easily into my sneaker and I can tie the laces!!!

Some things I still have not achieved at 14 weeks following lisfranc surgery:
I cannot walk downstairs normally without my cane and hanging on to the banister.
I still have trouble with balance on my recovering foot unless I walk slowly.
I cannot walk on uneven ground
I cannot walk down a hill
I cannot wear any other shoe other than a sneaker.
My foot itches where the incision is all the time. (Which means the nerves are regenerating!!!!)
My big toe aches with activity.
I cannot walk any type of distance.
