And I say I'll be fine but I don't think that I will.

I have a question that I can't seem to google up a good answer for, and I'm hoping slithytove or porphyrin or somebody else will have an answer for.

Say somebody's hamstrings (the tendons, not the thigh muscles) were intentionally severed, circa 1990 or so, and no treatment was available for that person for the first seventy-two hours after injury. What would the long term repercussions be? Leg braces and a cane? Would complete surgical repair be possible?

I can google up lots of information on care after surgical repair, and on immediate first aid for an accidental rupture, but nothing on the long-term prognosis for somebody who has actually, you know, been classically hamstrung.
