    Well, I can move it about an inch up and down, and 1/4 inch side to side. It's so tight. I start physical therapy Monday ugh.

    Workers comp. They're just paying for loss wages. I'll probably be getting a lawyer soon though, for pain & suffering, future medical bills, etc.

    Just take it easy. Man, did you had pins and screws in or just a tendon repair? I imagine they used heavy retention sutures similar to the braided fishing line (medical/surgical grade) to approximate the severed tendon.

    Hope you feel better.

    no pins or screws. The bone healed just fine. The tendon had a tear towards the bottom of my foot, and blood residue/marrow on it. The blood residue hardened on my tendon, which caused pain when stretching. I put up with the pain for a year after my bone healed, but then I decided to make it right.

    thanks :D
