 Re: New here: Operation on Monday on Achilles and other muscles

The full leg plaster cast is going to be a challenge. I suggest you get ready for a wheel chair with a leg lift at home. Get what you will need down low so you can reach it without getting out of the wheelchair. You will want to keep your leg elevated as much as possible. I rented a hospital bed that let me keep my leg above my heart; get one with an overhead frame so you can use a sling. Don't count on being able to crutch very far at first. Finally get a pedicure before the cast goes on. It is hard to do when your foot is in plaster and you and everyone else is going to be staring at your toes for the next 3 months. Good luck
