detached Achillis Tendon

Hi, I've had Hagland's for about 4 years or so and have had 4 different operations to have them removed.
Had both feet done 1 year and within a year they grew back again. By the time I had surgery again they were bigger then original and on both sides of heel.
The second time done he went more aggresive and concaved the bone, so it would take longer to grow back.
Well after a few weeks back to work my achillis tendon ripped out of my heel,taking bone fragments with it. The tendon retracted 4cm up my leg.
They had to put 5 anchor bolts in to hold it there and now I am in a cast. I was told by another surgeon that previous Hanglands surgery was a factor and the other heel tendon could do the same.
Anyway, do u know recovery time on this surgery and will I walk normal again(run)?

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
