R + 31 days (week 5). Non-surgical.

Age 70.  Ruptured my right AT while playing pickleball (5th time I played the game).

Received AirCast boot with 3 wedges (each 1″) on day 2.  Weight bearing was accelerated mainly because I had a tough time using crutches.  Got around on a knee scooter as best I could.

Removed one wedge on day 8.  Next wedge will be removed gradually over a period of about 5 days starting on day 35 (week 6).  The final wedge will be removed in steps on day 49 after I see physician on that date.

Many thanks to Agnes, Evan, Morc, SJ and all the others who put so much effort into their blogs.
