Healing long

Thanks all for the advice and encouragement
So i saw my OS on Thurs and it is once again confirmed there is NOTHING wrong with my tendon except it is healing long. No PTT dysfunction or any other complications. Just healing long and as such i’d have to work harder to get it working and just [...]

Week 24 - still no heel raise and may need re-op?

so 4 weeks from my last post - i am getting stronger from my weekly physio and twice a week of body conditioning with a personal trainer who is trained to do injury rehabilitation. however, i still cannot do a heel raise. my 2nd physio is concerned as she believes something might be wrong with [...]


I really don’t get what is it i am doing (or not doing) that my leg just doesn’t have calf strength. I am really at my wits end. Saw the 2nd physio and he gave me some exercises to do but nothing that i don’t already know. Its all about balancing on one leg, calf [...]

Week 16 - 17 no improvement?

Everytime i read the blogs here i get so discouraged and upset and angry with my leg and my PT. I am week 16-17  , still walking with a limp, and unable to do any of the exercises described on their blogs. Why isn’t my PT giving me similar exercises as you guys? Why am [...]

All clear! Phew!

Week 15 now and ultra sound scan today proved to be positive! Tendon’s still intact and everything looks good! Tendon is not ruptured! Hurray! Both sonographer and OS said scan showed everything is good. So I can resume with my Physio exercises and all. You cannot imagine the big smile on my face! OS couldn’t [...]

Saw my surgeon today and he was also not happy with my current state. He scheduled me for an ultrasound scan for Thurs and see what the results say before going ahead.
He did a few tests and said my leg was a little ‘floppy’ and ‘extending’ more than my good leg. I also had a [...]

Finally a scan

well things havent been fantastic since my last post. was able to do some gym exercises without immense swelling but now it seems to have transgressed to my tendon slightly swelling/feels hard/tense and tight. not my usual swelling so both my PT and I are a little worried, so he said i should have an [...]

Week 11

it’s already end of week 11 and i don’t feel like i have progressed much
every week my PT could only keep massaging my leg, pushing the swell up the lymph nodes and out of my system but my body don’t seem to be cooperating much
every morning post compression socks its fine, walk a bit more [...]

Week 2 post op 8th April

One week post op and things got a bit better, I wasn’t feeling as painful, but still couldn’t manage standing up any longer than 15minutes before i could feel my toes swelling up and turning purple.
So I basically cooked easy meals and tried to eat as little since I wasn’t working out as much as [...]
