Today I found out the answer to that question. Doctor pulled out the staples and everything looks good with the incision. Back into a cast with a little more stretch in the tendon. The cast is also about an inch lower than the previous one and wrapped very tight at the ankle. They really don’t want me moving it right now. I have to say I was not prepared for the amount of atrophy after two weeks. While I’m quite aware atrophy is part of the game I some how thought is would take a little longer. It appeared as is if my calf was already half it’s original size.
Doctor will move me to the boot in two weeks with 50% weight bearing. Two weeks later no crutches and PT will start.
