    Hi there Rose,
    sorry I am commenting on such an old thread but I re ruptured on Friday at 13 half weeks non op.
    I have just come across your blog and I cannot begin to understand what you have been through…3 times.
    I guess I don’t really need to ask you if you would reccomend I give non op another go? would you just go straight to surgery and have it repaired once and for all?
    I have my own blog if you want to answer there but if not I’ll come back to you here.
    I am so glad to hear that you have been discharged. I hope it is the last of your injury troubles.

    I never quite got the hang of this blog so I’m just going to reply here :) I was in my 13th-14th week for both re-ruptures. I can say to you, without a doubt, that if your doctor can operate you should go through with surgery as soon as possible. The pain is pretty well constant through the rehabilitation process but it is a much different kind of pain than that during non-op rehabilitation.

    I felt a great deal more strength and range of motion rehabilitating after surgery than with either of my prior two ruptures. I’m so sorry to hear about your re-rupture. I really know how discouraging it can be. However, I am now a nationally-insured, certified personal trainer and fitness instructor, after spending my whole school year in a walking boot! Great things come out of the darkness and you will learn things about yourself that others rarely get to have the privilege to.

    Will you please post a link to your blog so I may visit it? And please feel free to reach out to me any time you want to talk. Blessings and good health to you!

    Hi Rose

    I had a right complete ATR almost 6 months ago. I didn’t see Achillesblog for a while but have since read it most days, seeing posts of widely varying experiences, but only speaking from my own.

    Were you non-op at first, and second time? And now you’ve had a year in a boot after surgery. Your physiology or actual injury must surely not have been typical - and do you mean that you had a year of pain? In my case, there was pain when I ruptured and it was very sore for a day or so. Since then, hardly anything. Probably less than pre-rupture when I guess it was an accident waiting to happen.

    I am pleased to see that it has now worked out ok for you, and you have a great career.

    Hi Rose,
    so glad to hear that all has turned out well for you in the end. Well done you.
    Like Hillie above I have had little pain in the ATR whilst going non op. If I have surgery I’m guessing there will be much more pain due to being cut open.
    I cannot imagine what it is like going 3 times down this road so I am leaning towards surgery but I will listen to the docs too and then make up my mind.

    Rose for some reason you will have to agree to accepting the above, I think it’s due to spam issues on this site…
