I am supossed to be out of my 2nd cast and start walking in two shoes next week (6 weeks post-surgery). My doctor says I shoud start walking inmediately with the help of crutches and a pair of heel insoles inserted in my sport-shoes, but the fact is that I am a bit hesitant and a little afraid about using the tendon again. Last comments about re-ruptures (hope Dave and Chip are doing better now!) have made me scary about not having any protection (no cast or boot) around the ankle.
I would like to know how other people faced the beggining of their recovery, which where the feelings the firts days out of cast or boot and when did you start to get confident to start usin the tendon again.
Thanks for your great work Dennis and keep on recovering buddies!
