"Pre and post op.for ruptured Achilles Tendon"

About: Lister Hospital

It took an inordinate amount of time between rupturing my Achilles tendon ( 14th July ) until it was operated on (25th October ) by which time it had became a far more serious problem and now debilitating condition, but once in hospital I couldn't have asked for better treatment and care. Now I am just struggling with physio, once every 3 weeks which is not sufficient to get my leg working again. In France I would be having physio 3-4 times a week !!!!!
