achilles tendon

Yesterday (Friday) I lunged to catch a falling lamp in the parking lot at school. The trainer at high school and the gp doctor surmise I may have a ruptured Achilles tendon. Today is Feb 24th and I am scheduled to take a trip to Europe for two weeks beginning June 12th. If this is indeed a rupture, do you think I would have enough time to have it healed and rehabilitated by then? I am to see an orthopedic surgeon on Monday and will find out the scope of the injury. What do you think?

    It depends on if it’s a total rupture requiring surgery or a just tear. In the meantime, put a small heel wedge in your shoe on that side, or if it hurts way too much to walk get a pair of crutches and don’t walk on that foot at all till you see your doc.
