i'm still only 5 weeks post jury. But really dislike the sensation from injury. My foot isn't floppy but I definitely don't feel like I have full control over it. Its an odd feeling - hard to explain. Course i'm worried its not healing as nobody ever seems to check that. Will I regain the control?

    I had a similar feeling, though I only wiggled the foot round on a pillow. Kept well off the floor and relaxed unless in a boot. It was only when I started physio and got the ok to bear weight without a boot (about 9 weeks) that i started feeling a bit more control

    Thanks Tim - very reassuring. Looking forward to things feeling a bit more normal. How did they check that it was ok for you to start walking without a boot?

      Manipulating the tendon checking for any pain, ability to push and pull against a hand when lying on the couch, compared with the ok foot. Observation of ability to stand and balance, Observe walking, small steps with a handhold if needed. How did that feel question!

    When i was post 5 weeks i had surgery on my AT so this might not be of use. i didn't enjoy the sensation either my ankle was stiff as can be. It is still now post 9 weeks surgery!

    I havent started Physio yet, i tried walking without my open cast boot on Sunday and i was limping about struggling, thinking will i ever walk normally again!

    But from patient's forums its giving me reassurance as it seems everyone is going through the same thing.
