Two weeks post op, now in the boot

I found this site, and was interested in people sharing there experiences of there Achilles injuries. I found it to be beneficial to know other people are in the same boat as you.

I, like many others here, had a complete Achilles rupture. It happened playing in flag football league, just went to run and pop, down I went. It has been two weeks since the surgery and I have finally gotten out of the splint and into the boot.

NWB, is about as much fun as i thought it would be, Its a tough transition from being fairly active to being reduced to the couch.

I am enjoying watching a bunch of movies and playing video games, but i can tell it will only hold me over so long. I understand it a waiting game, so I’ll do my best to be patient until I am pwb and fwb. I also get to catch up on a bunch of reading, and that’s been fun. Anything to help pass the time.

  1. Greetz vom germany.

  2. I was in a hard cast for 2 weeks after sugery. Then i was put in an ‘aircast’ (walking boot). The doctor told me I can put my full wieght on my ‘aircast’. I told him I think that is too early…he told me not to worry and that I would not re-rupture my AT. For some reason, I do not trust him and refuse to put my full wieght on my leg only 2 weeks after surgery. My foot is still very swollen.
    What do you think?

  3. Get well soon, We are all in the same boat.
    Many greetings from Germany!
