Hello everyone again,
I forgot to mention that I have heard the following from my surgeon (1/3/07).
If anyone has any updates on this, please post so we can all see and compare.
This might only be applicable in Australia but here goes.
Surgery = 4% approx chance of re-rupture.
Surgery = Very high chance of full recovery strength in leg (98% plus?)
Conservative method (no surgery) = 12% approx chance of re-rupture.
Conservative = 10% approx loss of power on average for rest of life?
I'm sure each person is different and there are inherent risks with any surgery, including infection and general anesthetic.
The above are only averages so could be better or worse depending on allot of factors.
Would like to hear more stats if anyone has access to real research material.
