Achilles Tendon Rupture

So I'm 1 day post surgery. Did mine playing football and was v innocuous incident in 85th minute of busy game. Anyway originally opted for conservative approach as flew to Australia 3 days later in the boot! Had a scan out there and they said 3.5cm gap needs an op. Went back to Barnet General when i got home and they operated yesterday which is now 17 days post rupture. In a cast for 2 weeks then they plan a boot. Watch this space....

    2 weeks in a cast then the boot 

    Boot is great and I can weight bear however you need to be aware that you can't walk around like normal little steps I have found and still elevate when sat
