By looking at this page, I am not alone.
While on holidays, I was running on the beach 28th December with my nephew when I felt a pop, down I went. By 4am the next day I presented at the hospital and was told I had torn my calf muscle and sent home.
8 days later when I got home, I went to my GP and he sent me for an ultrasound, complete tear of my left leg Achilles at the junction. Hospital said they would not operate as it was 8 days since injury and because of the location. Was put in a full length 1/2 plaster for one week. Yesterday I was fitted with a boot and 3 wedges and told no weight bearing for another 2 weeks. Sometimes it is hard not to use the leg as I landed on my right knee which is painful when carrying all the load If I use my injured leg during these 2 weeks, is it going to prolong the healing? So far I am just resting the heel of the boot on the floor, not actually walking on it.
