1 year and 2 months post operation

It’s been a bit over a year since my Achilles surgery and it is time for a quick update. To sum it up, no major issues which is a good thing. On the other hand, no major advancement either. Part of it is because of my own schedule and the season change. The weather has really turned in Los Angeles and with daylight savings, it is really hard to get out after work to do a quick bike and run. One thing you don’t want to do is to go out exercising without the proper warm up. Not warming up while exercising will lead to injuries. In general, my Achilles feels strong and I am able to sprint, jog, jump without any challenge. There are still significant scar tissue which is inevitable and not sure how much of it will go away. You really don’t notice unless you are moving your fingers directly along the Achilles. There are instances where it feels tight but nothing like what I had earlier months immediately after surgery. I haven’t played any basketball but have been shooting hoops with my son which is nice.
