Yes my leg is very stiff. (leg and ankle) The second doctor said that my Achilles tendon is tight and he will do a procedure to lengthen it again. Too much lack of use - use it or lose it as they say. I have been using a resistance band under my toes like you mentioned. My muscles hurt but I guess that's to be expected. It's hard for me to trust these doctors because I've never had surgery before. But everything will be OK like you say. I have to do something since time and patience and healing on my own aren't working too well. I can't keeping worrying about all of the unknowns. I think part of the problem for me is that I didn't have surgery immediately, so this entire situation is incredibly emotional for me. It's emotional for all of us, but I haven't even started the healing process so it's just different for me.
For now I'm going to focus my attention on the things that matter the most and try not and worry about surgery and the unknowns that go along with it.
Good luck to you on the 14th Sara. We will have to compare notes afterwards.
