For those who don't know, Levaquin and Levofloxacin are the same thing (Levaquin is the brand name, Levofloxacin the generic).
Your experience is one of the scary things about Levofloxacin is that the tendon damage can happen YEARS after a person stops taking it. It could very well be the cause of your injury. Was it repairable?
