back in august 2011 i was returning from a light run and felt super sharp and horrible pain in my achilles area. its been a year of yoga, PT, walking boot for 3 months, cast for 4 weeks… NOTHING has worked. Heel is red, swollen, only wearing clog type shoes, cycling and swimming. Now I am contemplating surgery but its very hard to choose and I feel like it is a huge risk given the 6 month recovery time… So i just wanted some feedback as to weather or not the surgery is worth it. This year has been really difficult, I’m ready to get back to my normal activities!! Is achilles repair surgery worth the 6 moth recovery? Should I be happy with the limited activities I can do now? Thanks!
