    When I tore mine I a few yrs ago had a hell of a time with the inflammation at the base of the incision, and they were taping my arch like that, and I was leaving it on and showering in between as I was in like 2-3 x/week. Got taped up Friday, and I put shoes on and played in the river all day Saturday. Monday back at PT when I pulled the tape off I tore a 1/4" deep chunk of skin off the bottom of my heel. I then proceded to sit in the sun with flip-flops on and only get burned the top of the foot on on the recovering leg. I could barely do anything until almost 4mos and then it came back pretty quick after that, was able to ski just after 6 mos.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    ^^^ PT gave me some extra tape so Ms TBS can retape between sessions. He told me to be careful removing the tape - “it’s a great exfoliator” he said. Now I see why

    M Series Jong you add nothing just suck at life with your black font of shame....

    5 months update.
    I had developed tendinitis in the tendons going to my toes that stabilize the foot.
    And had to back off PT for a couple weeks as everything had become too painful.
    That has subsided and I am strengthening hard now
    Single leg calf raises with toe in and out hitting the different heads of the gastrops.
    Picking shit off the floor in different locations while standing on that foot.
    Sidesteps on my toes with a band around my feet.
    Calf is coming back to life and mass is returning very fucking slowly.
    Rolled up on my toes of that foot for about 20 seconds with other foot off ground before the calf gives out.
    Dr sez I am released for durt pedaling as long as I take it easy for next month until I hit the 6 months mark.
    He named some trails not to ride (ones with sweet jumps-Bobsled, Rush, Levitate) until October lol.
    Once at the 6 month mark I am released for all activities with implorement to take it easy and work up to previous levels

    STOKED!!!!!

    Think I'll go shuttle Levitate after work today and hit some sweet jumps!

    Yup I’m on the strength training program too. Semi-one-legged (can’t yet do just one foot) heel raises, two legged heel raises with 60lb kettle ball, homie-pokies (push a small weight forward, back and to side with good foot while standing on repaired side), and tippy-birds. Also doing squats for winter.

    Had to back off PT for two weeks when I pinched a nerve in my neck

    Still not doing anything with consequences on the bike. See the surgeon on Tuesday.

    In a show of optimism I bought my pass in June (without insurance) and bought a new pair of bibs. Will be interesting when the foot goes into the boot again...

    It sucks but like you say it’s slowly getting better. Keep it up!
