rupture of achilies tendon post surgery

I had resection of the exostosis with retro calcanual advancement in june 03. I was non wieght barring for 2 1/2 months and then went to partial and and then to full. I started PT and still had pain..but thougth the pain was just normal post op pain. I was out of the cam walker for about 3-4 months when my ankle started to swell massively and I started having horriable pain..even on anti-imflamorties and narcotics. Then I had an MRI which showed my tendon was torn and in the process of repairing itself. After discussing this with my dr. we found out that I had ruptured the tendon the day of surgery while at the hospital , but did not know. Now the option of a treatment called Osatron to speed up the healing process has been brought up. I know the same technology is used in Urology for kidney stones called Lithotripsy. I do not understand how the Osatron will speed up the healing process. Have you heard about this procedure? What do you recomend? I am , once again in my cam walker and it is almost one year post op.
thank you for your time
