I am a 38 year old male, who after not playing rugby for 8 years, had my arm twisted to play. I train regularly in a gym, three to four times a week. I turned up to the first training session and joined in a game of touch rugby, and within 10 minutes I had ruptured my Achilles tendon! I am now in a cast and looking at 8-12 week recovery plan. My advice would be simple, as you get older, allow more time to stretch and warm up. 15-20 minutes stretching and warm up could have saved me 12 weeks recovery time!
I am a 34 year old female. I tore my Achilles tendon playing kickball with family. I had surgery within a week, cast for 8 weeks. Now that I'm out of the cast, I'm dealing with constant swelling. It's getting better every day. It's definitely a long healing process.
I had surgery in 2005 now I feel the same pain, can't hardly walk without pain.
I partially ruptured my Achilles tendon a week ago, falling backwards down some steps in Venice. Intense pain and shock convinced my wife to call for an ambulance. Ultrasound scan and diagnosis by orthopaedic specialist led to a decision to go the non-surgical route. So far I am spending time in bed interspersed with regular walks in the apartment on crutches, with the leg encased in a rigid splint.
is it posiple to do surgry with midical perspective
I ruptured my Achilles while at work, I am a firefighter and I work out in the gym regularly. My orthopedist wants to keep me immobilized rather than surgery.
