Trying to wake up the left calf – 9 weeks post Achilles tendon surgery

The female DG thinks it’s pretty strange to be walking without cast or boot and is taking tentative steps around the house before heading out to the office. The sensation is hard to describe. There’s no pain but in a way there’s no there, there. It’s like the left calf doesn’t know what to do and interrupts a normal gait , although she’s not limping. Guess it’s another one step at a time deal.

    See if the docs you’re working with do cold laser therapy. (can’t find the right link right now…) It’s a treatment was was developed with Lance Armstrong as he was doing the Tour de France. Wakes up muscles that are not working. I have found it to be incredibly helpful!
