4 weeks post-op

I’m 4 weeks post op from a full rupture of my right achilles as a result of a fall skiing.  Just went partial weight bearing in a Vacoped boot and am experiencing the shooting pains in my heal and some ankle ache which I understand to be all pretty normal based on what I’ve read on others blogs here.  I assume that it will get better over time as I use my foot more and more, but I’m hobbling around pretty awkwardly right now.  Curious as to the general duration of this pain?
