Hi, I’m a lazy guy. I came across this site because I ruptured my achilles and I wanted to know how long I could lie around at home before I would be forced to return to the working world.
To anybody who sees this, I think this is a really valuable resource so thank you mr creator of this site, I appreciate it so much because it saves me, the lazy guy, from actually having to go out and do any research.
For those curious why I registered on this site: I got the injury playing basketball on 7/2/08. I had been dominating my buddy all day on the court and I had just stolen a pass for probably the 10th time that day. I heard my friend utter some expletives and then it felt like he kicked me in the back of the foot. I was all like “dude, you didn’t need to kick me!” And he was all like “what are you talking about, I didn’t kick you!” It then proceeded to hurt like a MF for about 20 seconds. After the pain subsided it looked and felt like nothing was wrong until I tried to stand up. My foot felt like it was completely dead and boy did it hurt. To make a long story short, I went to the doctor and he gave me the bad news and now here I sit, on my chair, for the past week….. just waiting for the day I can walk again. I was really fortunate though. I got the surgery the day after I got injured, which is a major miracle if anybody knows anything about Kaiser.
