Achilles Tendon Reconstruction using FHL tendon transfer

What we could have done differently

Nothing

Your recommendations

Why did you have your Achilles tendon reconstructed? I needed an Achilles tendon reconstructed (FHL tendon transfer) because I ruptured it during a fall at the beginning of August 2015. The tear measured 26mm but was not diagnosed when I first attended High Wycombe Minor Injuries Clinic. What were your concerns before the operation? I was concerned about undergoing a major operation at the age of 82 years and was frightened and worried whether the operation would be successful. I felt it might be better to leave things as they were because my damaged leg was not painful. The problem was that it was causing my other side, already damaged by a previous dislocation of the shoulder, to become extremely painful and made walking very difficult. What was your experience of the post operative recovery? Surprisingly I found the experience much more straightforward than I anticipated. The treatment could not have been better. The cleanliness of High Wycombe Hospital was immaculate and the food was excellent. Mr. Malik and all the nursing staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. They changed my whole expectations of the NHS. I cannot speak too highly of my treatment. Since the operation I have been undergoing Physiotherapy with Mr. Zahoor at Amersham Hospital. He is extremely patient and clear in his explanation of my treatment and exercise programme. What was the most challenging part of having your foot operated on? The most challenging part of the procedure was not being able to bear weight on my foot. As I was in plaster for two weeks it was impossible for me to hop, even to the toilet. What advice would you give future patients? I would advise any future patient to consider carefully the advice given by their consultant. I really did not want the operation but Mr. Malik was confident, despite my age, that I should go ahead because the Achilles injury would cause further problems to my other side. He was right because it worsened prior to the operation. If you are offered treatment by Mr. Malik, grab the opportunity with both hands. I send my thanks and gratitude to everyone.

Mr Malik's bed side manner was impeccable from the outset, he explained thoroughly the operation, and plans for recovery, and put me completely at ease! The aftercare was faultless, physiotherapy was well balanced, Mr Malik has repaired a difficult fracture and got me ready to go back to work in 14 weeks!!! Thank you Mr Malik for your expertise.
