Stretching after surgery

Posted by Lori S on 10/11/99 at 00:00 (011651)

John, It was quite a while before the Dr. allowed me to 'stretch' again. I can't remember how long but it was at least 2 months. I was not able to 'push off' when swimming which would be the same as stretching. I massage the foot (both feet actually) each eve and still have tenderness at the surgery site but no pain.
Ask your Dr. and follow instructions completely! This is very important.
