hi, i had surgery on my achillies tendon july 15thtwo weeks after i had the stitches removed/the suture open up completly to a wound. now i am going to a wound care dr. I am a month and a half and still in the boot i came out of surgery with no weight bearing at all!!My doctor suggest i see a plastic surgeon so that i may have a graft done but i will need some tissues from my back removed and put in the back because some of the tissues are dead problem now is were not sure the tendon is still in tact. theres a bone /or tendon expose and no one seems to be sure what it is. is it usual for the wound to open and expose your tendon? its my right foot when i get the boot on will i be able to drive? my doctor isnt very thorough so i am gonna have the doctor who gave me the second opinion do whatever is needed. I oppose having another surgery if my tendon isnt connected, i will not do this surgery again i will let it heal on its on!! can you help me out!!

  1. It would be inappropriate for me to give you any giesstimate regarding your situation as I have not examined you and do not have all the facts. I think an MRI would be a good idea to see what the tendon is doing. You should discuss this and all your concerns with your treating doctor.Good luck.

    • thank you , true another MRI is needed!! But have you heard of a wound opening up at all when theres surgery? ever? have you seen a case like mine where pastic surgery is needed? thanks alot

      • I GOT KICKED IN THE ACHILLIES TENDON ON A FRIENDLY GAME OF SOCCER, NOW I HAVE A RAPTURE BLOOD VESSELS IN THE INTERIOR RIGHT OF MY LEFT FOOT IT DOES NOT HURT BUT SHOULD I EXPECT ANY LONG TERM REPROCATIONS??
