Survey-One Leg Calf Raise..What week were you?

Columbus, OH-I was just wondering when the best time was to try a one leg calf raise. After reading about the most recent doctor induced re-rupture of a one leg calf raise, I went to PT. My PT told me to try and do calf raises with both feet which is fine, but to let myself down only on my good calf. I tried it one time and felt a sharp pain back there when just on the one foot so I quickly stopped? When did you try/do a one legged stand. My PT says that I have to be able to do three sets of ten one legged stand before I can try to run? Does that sound right? Thanks in advance everyone!!
