My Achilles Experience

Posted by dinardalvi on March 19, 2011

I had a rupture on my Achilles tendon (right foot) on Feb 05 playing cricket. Drove back home and went to the doctor on Monday . He said I have a partial rupture and suggested no surgery. He gave me a walking boot. Then when i was talking to one of the parent at my kids school and she told me that her husband had the rupture twice. the first time he did not do the surgery and then he re ruptured again and then he did the surgery. So i got a 2nd opinion and this time the surgeon did the MRI. The rupture was 50% and he suggested that surgery is the option if I have to run and play again. After reading a lot i decided to do a surgery and I had my surgery on Feb 24 2011. On Mar 7 they removed the stitches and now I am wearing the CAM Boot with a 10deg angle. Mar 21 is the time the boot comes to the Zero Deg and the Physio begins.

I started to have some tinglings/pinching in the area where the surgery was done on March 12 and it was really uncomfortable. I called the doctor ad the nurse told me that it is normal as the nerves are recovering. After that day there are no tinglings etc. Now i can move my ankle to the ground level. It does not hurt at all. I still have to use the crutches till i am allowed to be full load bearing.
I was also told that the physio hurts but i am all ready to start to walk. I am really bored sitting in one place.
