Today is the first day of week 6 and I believe things to be going ok. I have now taken another wedge out and have 1 final blue raiser giving me a slight angle for the foot. I also decided today is the day to go without the crutches. I have brought them into work with me but they are hidden in the corner.  Have to say the first 6 weeks have felt like about 3 months, I cant remember what it was like to walk freely and forgot the emotions of walking out of the gym after a really good session

Not back to the hospital for another 2 weeks now so just planning to try and continue to push myself a little walking a bit further each day and we will see how it goes. Have to say am feeling a little daunted about not using the crutches, walking feels a little unnatural at the moment as I constantly feel I’m about to fall flat on my face but I need to move on

In just over 2 weeks I am flying off to Budapest for a stag weekend, the doctor has already said that although I should lose the boot at week 8 he thinks it would be wise for me to wear it while I’m there. Might make some of the activities planned a little harder but airing on the side of safety feel is probably the right decision.  I have already contacted the airline in preparation and they are saying that I is no issues with me wearing the boot or taking the crutches on the plane but will let you know how it goes.

Have a good day all and hope your recoveries are going well

    Definitely take and wear the boot if your planning on drinking - one bad fall is all it takes, so better to be protected when the risk of that happening is at it’s highest.

    Sounds like you are on the right track already though.

    Enjoy the party :)

    Smiler, by week 8 you will likely be walking way faster in the boot than in 2 shoes, so if nothing else wear the boot to keep up with your buddies, but also to protect yourself from a re-rupture. Even when sober, those cobblestones in many older sections of European cities can be deadly. At weeks 9 thru 11, I travelled from the UK to Spain with my boot. You can definitely board before everyone else, even on budget airlines like Easyjet where you must queue up to board. Just mention at the boarding desk that you have an achilles rupture - show them the boot (and crutches if you need them) - and you are on board! Also, be sure to ask your doctor about preventative measures for blood clots as well. Have a great party!
