RE: Torn achilles tendon - 2 years
Surf...... no one here is rushing anyone to surgery...What we are doing here is people who have had surgery are sharing there experience and asking questions to help them along to others who have had surgery......and others just coming on are finding out what Doctors to go to to get a diagnosis...and guys Like Albert and I who didnt have the luck to have this site 5 years ago to get the right Information on are trying to tell you you will do further damage the longer you go untreated if in fact you do have AP...we are TRUE FACTUAL EVIDENCE of that.....no guessing games....One side may end up turning into a Bilateral repair....a not needed adductor release may turn into a needed adductor release.....more scar tissue build up...muscles can calcify together, further body dysfunctions will follow etc etc etc etc....All True facts that have happend to us.....and we kind if went down different roads with Albert being jsut about bedridden and me being able to remain active playing ball....Rest....Active.....same result
Achilles tendon surgery is one of the hardest surgeries to recover from......espeically if the tendon detaches....I had very athletic and in shape friends who had this and there recovery took a very long time and was hell.....MUch harder and longer then AP surgery
Well My Insurance..Anthem BCBS...paid my July 15th surgery with Dr Meyer today July 28th 100%...Very Quick to my surprise....Total Bill from the Hospital was $11,598 for a Bilateral repair, Bilateral Adductor Release and Belly button hernia repair.....Plus I did stay over night in the hospital...Total billed was over $42,000
