Achilles tendon blog: W+5

It has been five weeks since the Achilles tendon rupture, and I finally got out of the cast. The CAM walking boot takes some getting used to. I was surprised by how much it hurts to put weight on this bad leg. To make matters worse, my right calf muscle has atrophied to a size I have not seen since elementary school. In three weeks I should be able to walk somewhat without crutches.
