Thank you for responding. My number one fear since having surgery has been the idea of a reruptured tendon. I was on no weight bearing the first two weeks but cheated with toe touching, as it is darn near impossible to keep your leg completely off the ground when trying to ambulate. To not toe touch was actually more painful in my knee to not have anything supporting the weight of my leg. So I talked to a nurse who in turn talked to the OS about this and said he was ok with toe touching if it was minimal and comfortable.
In terms of other risky behavior, I overdid it by working 10 hours on my first day back and paid dearly. Yesterday, I accidentally started to flex the quadriceps during a yawn while laying in bed. I don't know if anybody else has experienced this, but a morning yawn is brutal. I never realized how strong I flexed during a yawn until this experience. Other than that I have been pretty careful with it.
When you re ruptured your quad, did you know instantly that something had gone wrong, or was it just a situation where there was no pain but things were not progressing as they should have?
Thanks for your encouragement and sharing about your own situation.
