Hello Vendy, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Basically, the pain that appears is very large related to the method of surgery performed, the method of open repair, incision or incision is made wide enough so that the possibility of many small nerves that are injured and cause pain that is long enough when the recovery process is happening. Whereas minimally invasive and percutaneous repair methods have smaller incisions so that recovery can be faster.
Besides rehabilitation carried out after surgery is very influential a lot in the healing process, because rehabilitation will restore strength and muscle endurance better so that pain can be reduced. In general, the rehabilitation phase starts from the first 6-8 weeks with early controlled mobilization, which is then followed by the early 6-8 weeks for the second 6-8 weeks, and ends with further rehabilitation for 3 months. After 3 months the achilles tendon condition is generally ready and healed and can function as before. To find out more clearly the cause of pain that appears at this time we strongly recommend consulting directly with the doctor who is operating on your achilles tendon. Thus our explanation, may be useful.
