Ankle surgery — Finale

I promised no more blog posts about the Achilles surgery, but I need to make an exception. Avid readers of this blog know that I often use it to throw rocks, when necessary. This time, it’s a case of unreserved applause. I had a follow-up appointment with Dr Saxena today, four months after the ankle surgery.

Having just come unscathed through a typical weekend (Saturday hiking 19 miles, 5000 vertical feet, Sunday cycling 52 miles, 2000 vertical feet), I am constrained in the things I can do, but constrained by my general level of fitness, no longer limited by my Achilles tendons. That’s how it’s supposed to be!

Well done, Dr Saxena, and sincere thanks.
