Achilles tendon rupture
I was in Cancun for the holiday and partially ruptured my achille’s tendon while playing volleyball.
The doctor put my whole right leg in a cast with my foot pointing towards the ground.
He said I should have my whole leg in a cast for 6 weeks and just below a below the knee cast for about for weeks.
To me this seems very extreme for just a partially torn tendon.
I have to make an appointment with a Dr here in the states.
Are there any options besides 10 weeks in a cast 5.5 more in a full leg cast.
