Six Weeks Post-Op

Friday, 19 November 2010, marked the end of wearing a plaster cast for 4 weeks and I was excited to see the doctor to get the thing removed.  After the plaster cast was removed, the doctor put my right leg into an air cast (walking boot) and told me my tendon required at least 4 additional weeks of non-weight bearing in order to heal properly. The doctor prescribed the constant use of crutches with the air cast and prohibited any flexing of the foot. What a bummer! I so expected to begin PT.
