 Re: Ruptured achilles-plaster from toes to thigh
WB (162.119.240.---)   6:52am May 9 2019

Just out of curiousity what age range are you in? If you are normally physically active I would think the cast option is better in the long run. Did they use plaster or fiberglass? Fiber is obviously going to be a lot lighter and more comfortable. Either way the wheelchair is the best option with the angle they used for the cast and being that your toes are pointed down because the last thing you want is to bump your leg while walking with crutches or have your toes or foot catch on the ground while crutching. I would recommend 2 or 3 pillows under your knee just to make it a little bit more comfortable while sitting too. Hope you feel better
