Achilles Tendon Rupture


Recommended Posts

I wanted to check with the group to find out if anyone has any experience with this surgery and recovery. I just had my surgery on 2/10 so a long road ahead.

Of Course I will be following the instructions of my doctor to the "t" as everyone's injury is a little bit different.  However, looking for any takeaways or tips from someone that may have went through the experience or knows someone that has.  Thanks!

Happened to a buddy, I believe he suffered a full or partial re-tear after the walking boot was off due to a minor slip. Make sure you focus on lots of mobility work all up and down the back of the affected leg - plantar fascia, calves, hamstrings especially with all the extra time spent sitting.

Ugh.. 

 

I feel for you man.  I completely ruptured my Achilles tendon about 10 years ago. Surgeon said it looked like 2 horsetails.  I was on a cast/boot for months.  As of today, I have no mobility issues, but my calves are totally different sizes and shapes.  It felt like forever to get back to walking, but you will get there. 

Do your PT. 

Follow the surgeons instructions to the letter.

Get a knee scooter. (life saver)

find an extra comfortable chair to sleep in for a while.

Pick up some new games for the Playstation....   

 

Good luck man.  That injury sux.

No experience with this, just wanted to express that I'm very sorry to hear you've been hit with this setback.  Hope you'll keep us informed of your progress as you rehab and recover...

A guy I played softball with had the same thing. He was out of action for the better part of a year. He was smart and followed the recovery instructions and process to a t and the few years after that we played together he had no real issues

My sister could have written this about her experience (except she's not into Playstation).   PT, following instructions, scooter, comfy chair and a lot of patience is what worked for her.   I know from her experience that there's no quick way back, but there are ways to slow it down considerably.  Good luck, juspoole.  I hope you can get to the other side of it.

Thanks for the advice and support @00sportsman, @RickyBobby_PR, @BMart519, @Getoffmylawn, @MmmmmmBuddy.  Already looking into a scooter as I'm not a fan of the crutches whatsoever.  Doctor said something similar to me about the tear was fairly severe.  He didn't use that exact terminology of 2 horsetails though, but that's a proper description.

Sorry to hear about the injury. My father in law just had the procedure done and he was in a cast/boot for 6 weeks or so. Hasn’t really started intensive PT yet, but I know he was super stiff when he got out of the boot.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I hope you heal quickly. I don't have any experience with this other than do what the doc says.

Take care, Ben

Speedy recovery wished here as well. My mother had this procedure many years ago now and yes long road to recovery and being older still has mobility issues with something's such as hiking but still runs and does plenty of activity. You got this. Plus another vote for the scooter.

I had a full rupture back on August 24th and surgery on the 3rd of September.  Definitely listen to your doctor. Not sure your height and weight. I'm 5'-9" at 135lbs. Once they let me walk in the boot I was on my feet as long as I could tolerate it. I would ice it nearly every night to keep the swelling down. 

Push yourself in physical therapy, pain is good, but listen to your body. Your tolerance to the pain will gradually increase. If you're in pain take a break, then try pushing again. 

Hang in there buddy, it's not fun.  Be patient, and again listen to your body, last thing you want is to re-injure it.  But you'll look back in 5-8 months and think it was a blur.
