Hello all, has anyone had problems with there Achilles’ tendons since GBS?
I currently just had surgery to have the Achilles’ tendon on the right leg released and awaiting and operation for the left leg
Hi Daniel, I don’t know if this is normal to the point of surgery, but really depends on the length of stay you had in the hospital and the care you got while there. I had sever “Foot Drop” as they call it since I was in the hospital for 3 months before PT started. They were unable to put on any braces to help due to the amount of pain in my feet and legs due to GBS, so I had a sever case of Foot Drop, but it was mostly worked out in PT by stretch the tendons. I did not have to have surgery though.
I would say that this is more due to your time down than to due to GBS itself, but I am not a Dr. and so cannot confirm that.
My achilles feel tight a lot especially if I slack on stretching them out
