Heel wedge question

January 17, 2015 · 1 Comment

So I just removed another heel wedge (1.5 to go) and now I can feel a bit of strain in my tendon.  No pain, but definitely some strain.  This would seem inevitable as I gradually test the scar tissue whilst returning my foot to neutral, but how much is too much?  I’m thinking I will keep the weight mostly off today and see how that feels at bedtime.  Having some scary visions of re-rupture…

    I advise wedge removal at bedtime, followed by a night in the boot. If there’s a stretch - not uncommon - you get ~8 hours of it NWB before you load it up.
    I think each angle change should ideally feel halfway between painful and boring, a bit of a stretch but not painful or scary. Ideally.
