RE: Successful surgical recoveries? Are there any?
Surf-

I am 10.5 weeks out. I would say my AP is 90-95% healed.
I walk 5 miles per day. If i did not have this damn plantar fasciatis I would be running. The only time i even have a twinge of a symptom on my surgical side is in the morning if i slept on my stomach. My adductors are very loose and flexible all the time.

My injury was severe. I was also out of shape.My bigger challenge was the opposite side which i now have under control since FMS and stretching. I would say if I did not tear my MCL (non related to AP if you are making the connection) I would be back to doing a full boxing workout.
I would say that is pretty successful.

I am back lifting weights, I do agility drills, play basketball and do my FMS workout.

What more do you want from people. I am going to spell this out for you because you are slow....

if you have a tear and AP....YOU OR ANYBODY ELSE IS NOT GETTING BETTER unless it is REATTACHED

I think the rehab protocol is the way it is because i believe meyers thinks time is the best healer.


So being 10.5 weeks out my AP surgery feels great.

IF i were in shape and did not
#1 Tear my MCL by stepping in a hole at week 4
#2 Develop PF from all this walking

I would be 100%...

My MCL is a grade 3 tear so it probably has another 4 weeks until it is 100% and my PF is getting better also.


Also Meyers is a surgeon. It is his job to get you in the position to heal. Same with any doc. They cut you....give you some guidelines and rest is up to you and PT.

Surf....you are one shot dude and persistent.
