Surgery - Achilles Tendon Repair

Overnight rather than daycase but that may have been timing of the surgery. General anaesthetic with nerve block.  Three small incisions. Evidence suggests this reduces complication rate. Nerve block seemed to work okay. Much less pain than after shoulder surgery. Back slab overnight. Next day full plaster.

Below knee plaster. Elbow crutches. Physio checked I could manage stairs. Home
