I ruptured my achilles playing soccer on 10/18/11. I am a 39 year old male, 5′ 10″, 195 pounds. I am overweight by any standards but exercised on a daily basis for at least one hour. I have three young children that keep me very active.
The surgery occurred on 11/1/11 and I had my first post operation appointment today. Apparently all is good thus far, my Doctor told me to begin putting weight on my injured leg and to use the crutches for balance. I am not suppose to push off using my toes and kind of put the weight on the flat part of my foot only. He has scheduled PT to begin 12/15/11. According to everyhting I have read thus far this seems to be pretty agressive. If someone else has a similat timeline give me a heads up, a little concerned about his schedule.
