Complete rupture of achillies tendon.

Posted by Kathryn R. on 2/18/02 at 08:26 (074119)

How does a sprained ankle become a complete rupture of achillies tendon? I had physical therapy before surgery and MRI show complete rupture of achillies tendon. Did therapy cause the rupture? After surgery I continued to worsen to the place where I can't feel things when I tramp, or I have a burning numbness. Can you answer my question soon I am on my way to see 5th doctor, and he won't give me direct answer as to what happened. Thank you.

Hi Kathryn - the doctors aren't always on the board, and I believe it might be a holiday weekend in the US - it may take a while to get an answer to your question.
