I’ve been reading others’ ATR experiences on the internet and this is a compilation of “worth reading” postings that I’ve found. Some possible complications to keep in mind and hazards to avoid. Please also keep in mind that these complications are usually rare, and not limited to just Achilles surgery.
As my anesthesiologist told me, The chances of complications is lower than the chances of getting into a car accident on the way to the hospital. But, as I’ve always been told, hope for the best, be prepared for the worst.. within reason. (Disclaimer: These are other’s ATR experiences, nothing more. It’s just something for you to keep in mind. Ask your doctor for qualified medical advice.)
General running theme of all these experiences is: Become Your Own Advocate for Health Care Services
