Frank, I do have full ROM. I do need to stretch it a bit more than the un-repaired side though, if I'm going to do something like pull my heel all the way back to my butt when standing (I forget what this stretch is called). If I sit down on the floor, I can pull my knees all the way back to my chest. I can also kneel on the floor and sit back on my heels. My PT emphasized ROM over strength because he said after ~6 months, I wouldn't gain any more ROM. I'd have to dig back through this thread to see when I hit it, maybe about 15 weeks? We got to a point where we stopped measuring because I was past 130. I did keep working on it for some months past that point though, on my own. I ran out of PT visits rather early in the process, as my insurance only covered 20 visits. So much of my later recovery was done on my own.
