I had it done in July of last year....Yes it did help alot. I take it that you are not able to dorsiflex your foot? You will not be able to put any weight on it for 6 to 8 weeks. Plan on using crutches for another 2 or three after that. Your calf will be stiff for a few months...You will need physical therapy to get mobile again.....Stretch, stretch and stretch...Good luck
