How long does a right ankle tendon laceration take to heal
hi there I had an accident 9 months ago (put my foot thro a glass door) I had an operation as I went thro a main artery all my nerves and of course my achilies tendon I was in hospital for 2 weeks bed ridden and in a cast for 8 weeks I have been attending the hospital every 6 weeks but still my foot has not healed I can not even put my foot on the ground as iam still in pain my foot is also turning blue when im out and about and the scar is still very red and angry looking iam wondering if this is normal that I still cant walk or even put my foot down and still be in pain
First of all, I wish your foot will recover soon. After seeing the image, i wish you remove the image, because it will make dishappy to others like me.
Attend Hospital Regularly, and get treatment. Mostly there will be some medicines to cure the right anke. Do not take risks and after complete recovery of foot, try to walk. Until then, Just use medicines and try some excerises which makes senses to your feet.
thanks for your response simplymoneyboy
but i do attend hospital and have done every 6 weeks for 9 and half months i have done every thing i have been told too do and yet i still can not walk
my question was aimed at medical profetions to answer or aat least advise on what further treatment i should seek
any way i have just been too the hospital and as it goes i made my sujestions from info on web and they are considering transfering me to a different hospital for an operation
not only do i have tendon damage but i have nerve damage and damage to my main artery in my foot so a second medical oppinion would be greatly appreiciated
Nerve is one of the the slowest healing tissues in the body. It can easily take a year for nerve damage to heal. Tendons heal slowly also as there is not as good of a blood supply compared to muscle. I would definitely seek aggressive physical therapy. The rehab process can be painful, but you must build tolerance to activity in spite of a reasonable amount of pain. Strength and mobility will serve you well in trying to regain optimal function. Let me know if you have other questions.

Why is it that sometimes you always get a blister in only one foot?I have a pair of sandals that when I wear will and walk a bit, I'd always get a blister in one foot but never the other - always the left, never the right. The left sandal is a mirror of the right so we can rule out design...
