Thanks bones111, you must be a doctor.
Ive been asking that question for months, and even my doctor wouldnt give me a answer. Thanks. I had the tendon repaired two weeks ago, I now have 10 stiches on the top of my foot, I wasnt expecting that, but I understand they had to chase down both ends of the tendon. But what you told me about the tendon weakening is what I expected as much research I have done, I figured the stress of haveing my bone broke and a screw inserted made the tendon weak. DO you think I might have the same problem with the other foot.( when I get brave enough to have it done) lol. Is there something I can suggest to my doc, about lengthing it?
