partial achilles tendon tear...anyone else?

Hey all,
It's been a long time since I've been on here. A little bit of back story. About 2yrs. ago, I had a haglund's deformity removal and a bursectomy. It took a long long time to heal but eventually did. The recovery was almost 9months before I was pain free and feeling good. I'm glad I did it now but while I was going through it, I didn't know what to think. Now, after a just simply stepping down a step on my porch, I have a partial achilles tendon rupture. It isn't too awfully painful unless I try to flex my ankle. Saw the ortho today and he set it in a cast boot with it extended by keeping heel wedges in the boot. I have to go back and have it re-evaluated in two weeks. Anyone else here have that problem and any idea what to expect from the recovery? Anyone else have a previous achilles type surgery and then have an achilles rupture? Just looking for someone else who has had this.

Happy Healing

I too have a partial achilles tear and also degenerated tissue. I'm going to have a reconstruction done on March 17th where they may have to take additional tendon out of my big toe to rebuild it. I've been dealing with this since last Jul/Aug, getting injections and such. I finally got someone to do a MRI and it showed the tear.

I'm concerned about the cast because I have "hot feet". I just read a post about cast caustrophobia and I may have that as well. We will see how it goes, please keep me informed on your progress.
