My achilles tendon repture & recovery blog.

5 days after 2nd cast (post from last week - just found it today!)

Hi all -

The aches from the cast don’t seem to be as bad today as they have been since this new cast was placed on it Thursday.

However, I have noticed my foot seems to swell to the point of discomfort rather quickly. I think this cast is a bit tighter than the original plaster cast was and therefor it has less room for swelling and becomes uncomfortable when it does swell. I have a call in to my doctor to see if this is normal or if they can replace the cast. I am having to keep my foot elevated pretty much all day to avoid the aches and swelling.
