dizziness is it from taking clexane

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had surgery nearly 4weeks ago for complete rupture of Achilles tendon and have to have daily injections of clexane 64 of them to be exact ,but since surgery I am so light headed and dizzy all of the time, could it be clexane that is causing this, anyone else had this happen

    Hi, I've suffered with a achilles tendonitis for over a year, despite physio etc. I'm a bit worried that after on long it will rupture, what caused yours to rupture of you don't mind me asking?

      No I've never had any trouble like that before ,I've got two dogs who I walked twice a day ,love long country walks ,was very fit as far as I no ,it scares me to think I won't get back to that place again if I'm honest, my goal now is just to get back on two legs it'd just such a long process ,and I hate this bloody pointy toe cast I got at the moment lol I'm having a bad day today x
