Probably not my best idea!

Hi
Not sure if it was a good idea but I have just bought second hand Vacocast boot on Ebay for £30 ($45). My plan is to take it along to my next cast fitting and try to persuade them to let me go into the boot at 2 weeks.
Appreciate any comments on whether you think this approach may work. Has anyone else taken their own boot and back seat driven their treatment plan?
Whatever happens I plan to keep the boot until I have finished with it and then to sell it and give the proceeds to achillesblog.com.

  1. Sounds like a great idea to me. I think it will be harder for the doctor to say no if you have it right there ready to go. Good luck and let us know how it goes :)

  2. Several people here have made that work. The most dramatic was johanna, whose story is so amazing it’s worth reading maybe 2 years later.

  3. Thanks Norm
    Johanna’s experience is very motivational. Have you heard anymore from her re her recovery since she stopped posting on achillesblog? I am assuming that she has not had any issues with her recovery.
