Achilles Tendon Rupture
I am in the process of recovering from an Achilles tendon rupture and was told by my doctor that it will be a long recovery. I will be 4 to 6 weeks in a cast non-weight bearing and then a walking cast and then physical therapy. Yes I was taking lipitor, I could not figure out how I injured it and I think I now believe that lipitor was a factor. I had never had tendon problems in the past and now I am out of work and in a wheel chair.

Lipitor, Lymphoma
Several years ago, my (now deceased) husband was prescribed Lipitor by his doctor. Soon after he began taking it, he had his first shingles attack.

Years later, his second shingles attack knocked him on his butt for months. At the end of that time, we discovered he had lymphoma. He died from lymphoma 12 days after being diagnosed.

I have recently found research indicating a link between statin drugs, shingles, and cancer.
