Today I went to my Physical Therapist who put me in a machine and started force bending my ankle, it did not hurt because my leg is/was broken, but because the muscles and ligaments are so tight that I cannot move the joint through its fullest natural motion range. tons of fun, by the time she was done with me (1hr) I was able to get 90% of my range of motion, I just hope it stays… when I arrived for PT this morning my range of motion was 65% of normal.
Also, to note, I have been using Mederma on my incision in an attempt to reduce the severity of my scar. I had a friend on facebook recommend Mederma to me, so I researched it before my Dr. even told me to use it, and I must say I am not impressed, I read through some of the case studies and there it has not been scientifically proven to do anything, at $15 per 0.70 ounces. There is scientific evidence that onion juice extract does a damn thing for healing or scars. Plus the reviews I found of it, there were several people who saw no change, the company said it was because 1. they did not use it enough each day (or not enough of it) and 2. they stopped using it. I did find several people who saw noticeable differences in the product while using it, but that their scars went back to the way they were before within a couple weeks after they stopped using Mederma.
