... :) Thanks! Theres no sharp pain or anything like that. This is simply a pain when I first start intermittently start jogging/walking. The soreness eventually kinda subsides but its there.

I have days when I hardly notice my ankle and then other moments on other days I wonder where an ache came from.

Im in my normal running shoe and occasionally wear an ankle brace in situations that might require me to protect it or if its for an extended period of walking. I am only cleared to walk at this point. I continue to see my PT 2x a week and continue to do all my exercises 2x a day.

... Thank you for the reply! That sort of recovery was what I kinda expected, so I'm a bit thrown off by the different route I might be taking. But as previously pointed put - each case is different.
Good luck with your future recovery! Here's to hoping mine will be just as quick! (12 replies)
