heel spur and bone chips in achilles tendonPosted by Gail on 10/22/00 at 16:36 (031029)
I have surgery scheduled on Nov 8 to remove the heel spur which has been cracked with a fall and bone chips in the achilles tendon. I was told part of the tendon would be disengaged, and then reattached with screws. After reading this message board, this surgury is scaring me. I was told a cast for three weeks and then I should be fine. That does not appear to be the most common outcome? Do I have other options? Is the recovery time usually longer?
