It has now been over 3 years since my achilles rupture and surgery. I haven’t been on this site in well over a year - mostly because I DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT MY ACHILLES ANY MORE!! Yes, to those just starting out or rehabbing, you will get there. I lead a full active life - I run (though I have been quite delinquent lately), I play softball, I walk perfectly normally and, other than a really ugly 6 inch long incision scar and the occasional strained feeling in my calf, all is perfectly normal. I even partially tore the calf muscle last summer playing softball (same way I tore the AT) and, although there was momentary panic, I quickly determines it was higher up, not the AT, and got back to normal activity within a couple of weeks.
So, hang in there, keep rehabbing, and you will get there!!
