ruptured achillies tendon

(3 discussions)

In oct 2012 I ruptured my achillies tendon and had set in a plaster cast.
After 6 weeks I had it removed and I am now in rehab.
Can you advise me what I should be doing to help it to repair.
I can now walk but it does swell up at night.
Every day gets a little better but still have a burning sensation after walking.
Would it damage it further to drive ie when I push clutch down etc as it is my left leg? I need to drive but I don’t want to damage it anymore.
Your help would be much appreciated.
