Re: Achilles tendon rupture

There are 2 schools of thought on this- one that agrees with your present treatment and the other that syas a surgical repair is the way to go. Each patient must be evaluated as to what is the right way to go. There are studies that show each is an accepted method of treatment although the statistics vary amongst studies.

When you see you doctor at home, your options can be explored. Possibly an MRI may be done to see the extent of the tear.

I understand this is frustrating, but be patient.

Good luck.
