The day I went down…

Hello all! Just want to say I am not thrilled to be posting about my achilles injury because this happens to be the third time I have ruptured an AT. Back in 2002 I tore my right AT and then as I ┬ájust started walking again I took a step back and it partially ripped again. So there I go starting all over with the process. The Dr. was shocked. I kept telling my PT that it felt like it was pulling when I walked and there was so much scar tissue it just didn’t look right. This time I was casted after each surgery. After the cast came off we started therapy right away with massage and thank God it healed and I was good for 9 years. I didn’t mention that I teach dance/pilates for a liviing. So this is probably as bad as it gets. So here we are on May 4, 2011 and I am teaching class and between classes I was doing a move I wanted to teach my next class and I did the move a few times so I decided to kick it out and this time I didn’t even get off the floor. I bent my knee to push and “pop”. It was so freaking loud. My poor students were more upset then I was. I was and still am in shock. I could not believe I had torn the Left side!! Pretty rare from what I hear. It was just sitting there ready to pop no matter what I was doing. I denied the ambulance because I didn’t want to pay so I got to the hospital and was in the Dr. Office the next day. Luckily I only suffered one day with it unattached. I was in for surgery Friday morning. Oh yeah I am now allergic to Vicodin. I love getting older. Now we are all attached and on the road to recovery!
