Achilles tendon rupture – rehab
i torn my achilles tendon the end of July. i went to see a chinese bonesetter for more than two weeks before i consulted an orthopedics to find out that in fact i had a complete rupture. so, immediately, i was advised to get a surgery. so now, it’s been 5 weeks since the operation and am on a cast. was advised that i can take off the cast by end of next week and from there onwards, i will need to go thru 6 weeks of physiotherapy. as i am quite concerned how long it will take for a complete recovery but at the same time, i would want to take time to make sure my leg will function as well as it used to be, i want to see if there is anyone in this forum who had the same injury and could advise me on issues i need to watch out during this upcoming rehab period.
Also, there is a small lump found near the incision area which the doctor said it will go away “completely” in a few months. he gave me a name of it “fibr..” but i don’t remember what it’s called. i wish to find out if it is normal or if it’s some sort of complications that will stay with me forever.
i will deeply appreciate if anyone who can provide me with some insights how to deal with the following weeks to come. many thanks.
