28 wks since re-rupture; non-surgery

Posted by suthrnman in Journal

Thought I would give a quick update . . . I am still doing well and making progress.  I can do short heal raises and walk w/o a limp.  The tendon still feels split from top to bottom, but no pain and strength seems in line.  I wonder . . . has anyone else has had a tendon heal like this? It is like two tendons side by side until I flex, then they harden as a one–oh well.

The area above the break is still kinda hard and thick, but nothing that bothers me.  Good healing to all. pk

    I’ve gone through two non-surgical healing processes (up to 14 weeks before rerupturing) and never experienced the sensation of two tendons side-by-side. Perhaps you have some scar tissue build up that’s causing lateral stress to make it feel this way? Congratulations on being able to walk without a limp!

    That’s a new one on me, SM!

    Check out the first picture ahnadlass posted on 10/27. That looks, to me, a lot like what you’re describing… maybe he has some further insight.

    Hey Ryan,
    Thanks for the suggestion. The photo does look like what I have been describing; however, the surgery to correct looks dreadful. I believe I am taking the first surgeon’s advice and keep doing rehab/pt. My leg is already strong enough for slow jog, partial heel raise and a nice gait–no pain. So, I can’t imagine going under the knife until I see a real problem.
