I sustained this injury on 14/August/07. I experienced no pain after the injury.I alighted from a subway train and my leg gave out under me and I fell on my face.Ironically I was on my way to a doctors appt.I was seen by a physicians assistant who told me I had two options: surgery or a cast. He did not weight the pros and cons with me so that I could make an informed choice I didn't ask beause I was in a state of shock. Now as I read a large no. of sites I am plague with doubts about my decision.He did not do an ultrasound test which would have bolstered my confidence to see if the tendon parts were close enough or were touching so that they could knit themselves back together. I meant to say earlier that I have been in a cast since the injury. I am also concerned that my calf muscle will permanently atrophy.This is a long weekend holiday in the states but I am writing a laundry list of things to ask him come Tues. next. It's Sunday am as I write this 5 am to be exact. I cannot sleep even thought I am fortified with sleep meds which are energizing me rather that the usual go to sleep. If you can help or identify please respond. appreciatively, Stan
