  2. Hello Everyone,

    I blew out my Achilles 14 days ago today. It was the worst sound I heard coming from my body. “Pop!,Bloop!” Either or I knew exactly what it was. The start of a long by road to recovery. So, here I am trying to understand and cope with people who have gone and are experiencing my life of an Achilles injury. I had surgery on Tuesday January 31st. @7:30am. It’s been 4 days since and pain comes and goes. The worst pain is putting my leg down to go use it. It feels like razor blades are traveling down my leg. I try to have my leg up for most of the time. But, I’m not use to sitting around, I need to move around …

  3. Alfred, the tingling you are experiencing is normal and expected. It can last a year or more.

  4. Alfred, the tingling you are experiencing is normal and expected. It can last a year or more. My tingling is just starting to lessen at 3 months post op. Keep your leg elevated as much as you can and put ice behind your knee, my doctor swears by this! it cools all the blood going down to the foot. Hang in there!!

    Thanks for the response, I started to ice my knee. It does alleviate the pressure I feel down my leg. I try to keep my leg up at all times. Today is day 5 of post op. It feels like pins and needles down there. I also try not get up as much but that’s the toughest. Unfortunately, no grilling before the big game today……Thanks for the time.

  6. Am I endangering myself for going to work? Was I to soon to get back? I don’t move around much at work. I kept my foot up all day. I tried not to walk on my crutches as much. I felt a lot of discomfort and pressure on my foot when I got home.
