Saw Mr Klinke the surgeon again today. Wound healed well and he said I could move onto PWB but still keeping Aircast Boot on 24/7. Absolutely stressed the need for caution and said the risk I’m running is that the tendon will stretch otherwise - need to do some research on that. He said that I can start some physio so I have to work out how to organise that. He’ll see me again in two week’s time and that I might be able to move to FWB then. He confirmed that the most likely time to rerupture is weeks 8-10 when people start getting too confident……so watch it guys. He also said important to be careful at night and to wear the boot in bed - he had a patient who didn’t, got up in the night absent mindedly and reruptured……..
I suffer by the way from haemochromatosis which is a genetic disorder that means you don’t metabolise iron. Do any other Forum members have the same thing as I’m interested in whether there is a connection between that and my ATR?
Keep moving (if you can)
