Well, I’m here  - Achillesblog.com.

I suffered a complete rupture of my right Achilles on Tuesday night @ 9PM (July 29th, 2008) while water skiing.

I am a slalom skiier and was rounding 3 ball when the ski virtually stopped in its tracks and I went forward.  My front foot (left) came out of the binding and my back foot did not.

I could tell right away it wasn’t good.  Once I removed my foot, you could see a dent in my ankle where the tendon should have been.  Straight to the hospital and had sugery the next morning to repair.

So, now it is Friday - and I am beginning to learn how to recover.

    Welcome aboard! You will love this site. As well as a great big stack of books, movies, and food delivered to the bed…

    YOu’ll be amazed at all the differences in progress, the protocols from different doctors, etc.

    So tell us all about yours, but also, how it goes emotionally and so on, because that is what makes a good read for us stranded ATR victims.

    At least, speaking for myself! Tell us how you FEEL!!!

    Good Luck
