Started walking after removing the cast after a partial tear to achilles, aggravated. Feel indentation there. Should I be worried ?

Hi, my name is AAAAA and I was recently taken out of my cast after a partial tear to my achilles. I was walking and putting pressure on my achilles as recommended by my doctor. However when i was walking i think the angle that my foot reach was too much and it aggravated it. Again, today I was walking with my crutches and putting pressure on it as recommended and it was aggravated by the angle. I felt my achilles and i feel an indentation in it now. Is that okay or should I be worried that there is another partial rupture?

Hello AAAAA, I understand that you had a partial rupture of the Achilles tendon.Firstly you will have to use an elasto crepe bandage to stabilize your ankle joint and then you can start walking with partial weight bearing on the affected leg with a single elbow crutch.
