It’s been a long journey demanding more patience than I though I had… I ruptured my right achilles for the first time in April 2008, then reruptured one year ago. To all of you I will say - keep up your mood and have patience - it gets better but it sure may take a long time! I’ve had recurring pain at the point of insertion of the achilles into the heel bone since I underwent surgery, although the rupture was 4-5 cm above. During this summer - especially the last 3-4 weeks - progress has been remarkable and the pain now is almost gone. I am not really sure what has happened.
I have taken small steps and listened to my body, which I did not do after the first operation. I had an acute back pain 1 1/2 month ago and consulted a chiropractor. He examined my ankle and said it was a stiffness there that put strain on the achilles tendon. He meant that the back pain was a result of this. Since then I’ve had four treatment sessions. The back pain is gone and the achilles feels a lot better - life begins to smile again!!!! Good luck to all of you!
