    Info Achilles tendon rupture

    Anybody else had this?

    Managed to snap mine 2 months ago and still cant walk and have to wear a medical boot for another 2 weeks.

    Tried to do my research on google but there are so many mixed results!

    Yep snapped mine two years ago, its fine now takes about 6 months to heal fully.
    Have you had the op or had it in a boot with your foot pointed down?

    I did about a week in half plaster and then straight into a boot @ neutral.

    When I went back after 4 weeks the doctor looked to me like he couldnt understand why it was left at neutral but probably couldn't tell me this.

    I'm desperate to do some sort of training to stop the gut growing so ive bought a cross trainer. Just hope i can use it sometime soon!

    I did both of mine 3 years ago. All healed up now only difference is I get aches from them when training.

    I couldnt imagine that.

    Im struggling mentally more than anything.

    Staying in the house doing fuck all is killing me.

    How long before you could jog on it?

    Because I did both it was around 5-6 months before I could start running. Once you start physio it will be all about stretching and strengthening, my physio also massaged them too Jesus that was painful
