spur at back of heel & under achilles tendon

Posted by Eileen I on 11/01/03 at 16:20 (136150)

Had surgery one omonth ago to remove spur at back of heel and under achilles tendon. I was in a splint for about ten days, then a cast which is on for almost 3 weeks and will come off in another week. Then I am told I will be in a Cam Walker. I am told that no weigh bearing for 3 months.

What is the purpose of the Cam Walker? Must this remain on at all times?
