I had a total rupture of my righ achilles tendon. This is my 10th week after the cirgury. Is the tendon ready to work on strong

Posted by EdgarB

The doctor did the Perez-Teuffer technique on my foot, because this is my second rupture. The first one was on on Feb 22. During the rehab period, I fell again and had a the second rupture.

The therapist says she cannot work on my ancle, because the tendon has not completely heal, and stretches could damage it.

I can walk now (Limping). And before I went to the therapist, I had been doing strong stretches on my ankle. It would be convenien to keep doing stretches to recover the movement or should I wait? (I don´t want to wait more than the needed time).
