Achilles Tendon Surgery - ONE INCH REMOVAL

Posted by Faith on 9/17/04 at 20:13 (160101)

My surgeon told me that he had to take an inch out of my achilles during my surgery. Said the tendon was very frayed almost like a paint brush. Had to take half inch on both sides. My question is 'will I be able to get back to normal?' I use to run alot and I am wondering if I will be able to run again. My therapy is going well as far as I can tell.

Thanks.
