Ruptured Achilles Tendon
Ruptured my achilles tendon doing back lunges at a keep fit class. No previous problems.
I was put in full leg cast for 4 weeks, then a cast to my knee for 4 weeks, am going back to hospital next week for yet another cast for a further 4 weeks.
Spoke to the doctor re surgery but he maintains immobilisation is the best method. After 12 weeks I am told that I will need physiotherapy for some unspecified time. Can you tell me what are the chances of full recovery and how long will this take? Have heard various things and am concerned.
