Hi everyone, Ruptured my achilles 8 weeks ago, had surgery followed by 2 weeks in plaster and then 6 weeks in a walker boot. Removed 1 heel lift every two weeks and just now been cleared to remove the boot and can carefully begin to walk in a shoe again.
Been having PT every week and doctor was very very pleased with how well musclemass had returned and with my flexibity. Physio is now on holiday so im on my own for a bit.
However 5 days after removing the boot my ankle is very swollen now. I never noticed it being like this while using the boot and am concerned there is something not right. Have no pain so im not super worried, but would like to know if this is normal or if its something to worry about.
Anyone else had anything similar?
