Week One

On the plus side, I had very little pain in my right leg or ankle.

On the minus side, the plaster cast was heavy, hot and sweaty.

I discovered AchillesBlog and read lots of stuff on here. Gradually became aware of the long road that lay ahead! But also reassuring to start learning more about treatment options and rehabilitation, in preparation for my follow up hospital visit on 17th May.

Quite confusing initially, in view of the US/UK differences in approach, and also the apparent significant but patchy developments in non-surgical treatment protocols over the last decade.

By the time the 17th came around, I expected to be offered non-surgical treatment, and I expected that I would not push very hard for any surgical alternatives.
