Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This post is to pass on the advice my
    AFCO gave me regarding this injury.
    I ruptured it a couple of weeks ago and was advised not to have surgery because the rupture was a matter of mm.

    AFCO said I would need a re-med three months after I was back walking and exercising properly. If I had opted for surgery then the time elapsed between walking and re-med would have been 12 months.

    So if anyone out there has this injury currently then don't fret! But at the same time, always check your individual circumstances with the AFCO! (disclaimer....)
