But I will be having reconstructive surgery on my Achilles tendon April 3rd. I've been dealing with this for about 3 years now, so there are multiple tears, scar tissue forming, tears, etc, etc.
Its a one day surgery. We have discussed this with the doctor, based on all my previous surgeries where I ran into on complication or another. Pain control is also a major concern for the surgeon since I am already a chronic pain patient. He has written several letters of medical necessity to have me admitted, at least for one night. Insurance has refused the initial request and a number of appeals.
The hardest part of this surgery is that I have to be on No-Weight bearing for 5 weeks. We are renting a kneeling scooter so I can get around the house. But , this will be strange for me, because with all of my other surgeries, I could at least gimp around the house.
Surgeon believe I should be back into semi-business by June and at full strength come Oct/Nov
