    Question Adding calf size after ankle fusion?

    I had ankle fusion 7 months ago and have been getting better. Just trying to add size to my calf. I'm able to flex the front of my foot down. Just looking for other exercises to increase the size of my calf.
    C-5, 6 SCI. Took about 6 months to walk. Walking full time. Without any assistance since Nov. 2003 and will make a full recovery

    Stand and come up onto your toes/ball of your foot with one foot at a time, standing only on that foot. Get your heel well off the ground. Up, down, up, down, etc. Hold onto something so you don't loose your balance.

    You can also get some Theraband and sit with one leg at a time extended at the knee, put a loop of Thereband around your forefoot and pull your toes and ball of foot down against the resistance of the Theraband (holding it in your hands).
