Day 94 - Only 10 days to go till I ski !!!
Only 10 days to go until I am going skiing. And boy do I have some good news.
The achilles feels great. I have (I hope) enough flexion (eg bend at the knees) to ski. I still have a little bit of pain down near the ankle but I dont think this will be a worry.
Still riding my bike heaps and working out in the gym.
Started to do alot of wobble board exercises on my bad ankle to get all the nerves operating correctly.
Still seing the OT but there is no pain there when he works on me (thank god)
Ankle is no longer swollen but the achilles tendon itself is very fat and hard from the build up of collagen. I am not sure if this will ever get back to its normal slim shape??
And, the best news of all is the place I am sking in (called Falls Creek) has had the most amazing snow falls. In my 18 years of skiing there this is the best season I have ever seen :)
