Not necessarily game over. Nick L did the same. It'll be an op and a long re-hab though. Pass on my condolences. Tearing my Achilles is my worst nightmare.
Helen. She's exaggerating - Jackie Hallett snapped her achilles a few years back. Now cover star on CS.
"Boot & crutches" after A&E tonight, though.
Sounds bad. . . .
Op? Really? Don't these things heal?
Depends how bad the tear is. If completely severed then it will have to be sewn back together. Sounds like it's not that bad though. Send her my best wishes.
Not totally severed. not like Jackie . But still awful - she thought something was running up her leg . it was her stringy bits tearing!
