HELP!!gastrocnemius recession vs achilles lengthening?
Please share your experiences. I went in for pre op yesterday. The orders were for pttd debridement, tendon transfer, calcaneal osteotomy and achilles tendon lenghtening. Now doc has changed the achilles lenghtening to gastrocnemius resection. Is this more involved? Longer recovery? Please answer soon. My surgery is in a few days!
