Achilles Tendon Tears, Unlucky but lucky with the Achilles Surgery
In 1983 I tore my right Achilles Tendon playing basketball and had surgery to repair it.
Then in 1986 I tore my left one playing softball and had surgery.
I must be the luckiest person that ever did this because I experienced very little pain before or after surgery.
Each recoup took about three months. The worst part for me was being on crutches for the first two months each time and being virtually helpless. After healing I experienced only some discomfort after very physically active days.
I just tore the right one again last night, so here we go again.
Well, that's good you didn't have much pain. And sounds like really good recoveries.
And it doesn't sound like you have much of a resulting, ongoing Tendonitis
problem from it. Excellent.
Did you tear all the way through, or just a big partial tear?
I'm curious why are you ripping so much.
Have you had a lot of other injuries?
Other pain issues?
What have doctors said?
I'm curious, I'm curious.----------------------
