  1. Hello Pokerpun,
    Bad luck, it sounds a bit grim. I had a wasted 12 weeks trying to heal my achilles conservatively - it was a shattering blow to be told it hadn’t worked and I was back to square one. I’ve always thought the psychological aspects of this injury are just as hard to deal with as the physical side.

    However there are hundreds of case-loads on this blog and ,as far as I can see, there aren’t any examples where no healing has taken place eventually.

    Don’t get me wrong its been more of a battle for some than others but everyone seems to get on the road to recovery eventually. I reckon you need to hang on to the fact that the human body is an amazing bit of kit and healing is inevitable (eventually)

    Good luck, keep sharing your frustrations it’ll make you feel much better.

  2. I agree one of the worst things about this whole injury is the mental part. Thanks so much for the reply. I go to doctor on Monday i will keep you posted.

  3. Hello Pokerpun, sorry to hear about your whole situation, but I do have a question for you. What did it feel like to rerupture your atr? The reason I ask is because I think I might have reruptured mine. I originally had the surgery to repair it on November 10th so it’s only been a couple of weeks, but I had a little accident today. The bottom of my heel, ankle & calf muscle are hurting right now. Do you think it’s possible I reruptured it?

  4. Yo, Dee, If you are that concerned then you should call your doctor. Better to be safe than sorry. You lose nothing by calling and speaking with your doctor.

    Keep us posted on what happens.

  5. Hey Maestro, I did call to make an appointment asap when it happend, but because of the upcoming holiday the soonest I can see my doctor is Monday. But actually today the soreness went away I think I was more scared then actually hurt. However, don’t get me wrong I’m still going to see my doc on Monday anyway just to be on the safe side.

  6. Sounds good. Keep us posted.
