Achilles rupture surgery questions
Hi all. I ruptured my achilles a couple days ago and I’m scheduled for surgery this Friday.
I’ve read quite a bit about what’s happened and what’s done during the surgery, but not much about the surgery.
I’ll admit it, I’m a whimp when it comes to doctors! I haven’t had any surgery before, still have my wisdom teeth.
Can anyone explain what happens from a general standpoint? What type of anesthesia is used? If it’s general, does this consist of a tube down the throat? Can it be done with local anesthesia?
Thanks for any calming support.
