Re: Achillies Tendon?

I have the same lump in exactly the same place and the same pain as you discribe but mine began about 3 and a half years ago. I had an MRI which the doctors say shows that my achilles tendon is torn about one third of the way through. I was told it would probably take a couple of years to heal but I wasn't given any "therapy" or anything. Since it still is about the same as several years ago, I've started doing my own research (that's how I saw your post) and I've decided to purchase and use a night splint/brace to keep my foot at a right angle during the night. I'm going to try this for four to six months and if I don't have any improvement, I'll go to another doctor, maybe check out a surgical possibility. Good luck, I hope you heal faster than me!
