I cut my thumb open a couple weeks ago and had surgery to fix a tendon. How would I know if it ruptured?

Function

Extremity-upper-fingers
Whichever movement was facilitated by the presence of that tendon would be lost and you would no longer have that movement. It would also be likely to be very painful.

What is achilles tendon rupture like?

Awful

Tendon
A full blown true rupture leaving a depression in the tendon called a dell may require surgery. An MRI will help make that decision. A partial rupture or tear may not. The latter will need immobilization, non weight bearing, rest, elevation, ice, and meds...

Can you educate me about tendon rupture?

Direct trauma

Hernias
tendon injuries are very catastrophic. Usually occurs when the foot is in a fixed plantargrade position and the tibia (shinbone) externally rotates rapidly, and the foot does not release from its flexed state. Injuries for tendon ruptures also take the longest to resolve, which can be from 8-20 weeks, depending on the amount and time of damage to the tendon.

Dr. Shawn Hennigan answered:

How do you fix a patellar tendon rupture?

Patellar tendon

Knee
Repair of the patella tendon (PT) requires an incision in front of the knee. The tendon typically pulls away from the inferior pole of patella. Vertical drill holes made from inferior to superior patella. Stitches are placed through PT, passed through dril holes, and tied over top of patella.
