I ruptured my Achilles on the 22nd of July and cast went on straight away (non surgery) for 3 weeks and on moon boots for 2.5 weeks now. I am moving about with 2 crutches since day one and obviously still in a bit of pain.
I went to a family wedding on Saturday and was on my feet for about 5 hours in total and in total agony until I can't bear the pain any longer and went to the car to sleep. Left the wedding 1am Sunday and slept for 10 hours and when I woke up, I could move about in the boot freely with no crutches and less pain. I am very excited about this but a bit sceptical at the same time. I have booked an appointment with the hospital (private) on Wednesday, I really feel I could walk in trainers now but obviously I won't even attempt it until given go-ahead by the doctor. I obviously have a limp while walking.
Has anyone been able to walk in boot without crutches around 6 weeks mark?
