How it happened

My rupture occurred on 7/26. I was playing second base on my softball team. A ball was hit my way and took a bad hop about 3-4 feet in front of me. I jumped to make sure I wouldn’t take the ball off my face, and at least try to knock it down if I missed with my glove. That when I heard the dreaded pop. I’m not sure if it was in my head…or it was actually made the sound. I felt what so many on this blogging site felt, like someone had kicked me in the calf. After I cam down from the jump (I can’t jump high anyway…so this didn’t take long), I went after the ball. I didn’t make it to the ball…and crumpled to the ground.

The best way I can describe the pain associated with the actual tear was like having a pretty bad ankle sprain. It was more of a throbbing pain than a sharp one. I was helped off the field..and started icing it immediately. I couldn’t put any weight on my foot. I was hoping I just strained something. The next day at about noon I was a little more worried that it was torn. I started feeling around where the tendon should be…and instead of that tight feeling….it felt mushy. Started doing some research and had my girlfriend perform the Thompson Test. After that I called and set up an appt. with the orthopedist
