Flat-footed and splay-toed: 10 weeks post surgery

Ever since the “clunker” (aka walking boot) went to the corner of closet a week ago, the female Dual G has been trying to figure out why she’s limping even though her surgically-repaired Achilles tendon doesn’t hurt. A session of physical therapy today revealed the answer. Rather than the regular walking motion of heel first, the pushing off with the toes, she’s walking flat-footed –  clump, clump, clump. In addition, to compensate for whatever foot and calf muscles aren’t working, she toes are splaying like a web foot. Remedial exercises have been prescribed – necessary to leaving gimpdom behind.

  1. How did you injure your Achilles tendon anyway? If I new, I’ve forgotten. Whatever it was…. don’t do it again. Man! What a long recovery.
