I am 2 1/2 weeks post op. and was given a boot instead of another cast. I am still NWB, but the boot was given intrust so I could at least remove it for showering. I removed it for the firsst time last night and was horrified at the sight of my leg all withered up! I had a severed achilles-near the calf muscle and the doctor told me that the sutures from tendon to muscle were still fragile, so I am afraid to move my foot/ankle at all! I’m not really afraid of the pain, but of re-injuring myself. Anyone else? I almost wish I would have gotten the cast for another 2 weeks,I felt more secure with it. Anyone else?
