I am a 25 year old female who works out 4x a week. I ruptured my AT on August 12th, 2018.

  1. Welcome to the club Andrea!

    Be sure to check out agnesatr’s achilles blog. She has some good info and some good videos! I’m more than twice your age - LOL! I’ve been through the entire bone spur surgery before so I already know that the outcome can be awesome at the end. A bit different for those with ATR since they didn’t do it voluntarily. I hope you have at least a shower stool to kneel on, a cast cover to cover up until you get the OK to get your foot wet, a knee scooter or iwalk if your doc will have you being NWB for any length of time (unless you’re good on crutches - I’m a disaster on them!), and an even up so that both feet will be at the same time while you’re in the boot.

  2. Hi Cserpent! I read your blog and definitely check out agnesatr’s.

    I actually was put into a boot 2 days post-op. I’ve been given the go ahead to get the incision wet in the shower but just not in standing water (i.e. ocean, pool, etc). I’m NWB for 5 more weeks so we will see if I get too tired of the crutches!

    Thanks for your input! It is really nice to be able to find people who are experiencing something similar.
