File Under: "Move Along—Nothing to See Here"
I'm tired of the pool.
I'm sick of walking in the soft sand.
I no longer want to deal with pool therapy.
So, today, I strapped on some fins and rode my mat. Just because.
Yes, my ankle hurts now. Scar tissue has a way of temporarily paying you back for making it close up shop.
My surgeon called me today, interestingly enough, a few hours after I'd returned from the beach. He told me to start surfing. I told him the ankle still hurts when I try to pop-up. He would have none of it. He directed me to get back on a board, saying the pop-ups and other things that stress the ankle would help me rid the joint of even more scar tissue.
I guess that means I will probably start surfing again soon.
Even if it hurts.
