1 Year Anniversary

Hi there! It’s been a while since I last posted, I’ve been more active on the facebook room. I ruptured my tendon a year ago, playing the sport I love. It hasn’t been easy, and still is not 100% which is a very ambitious goal, but coming from a rupture, surgery and re-rupture, non surgically then, I think it is still possible. A year ago, six months ago, 3 months ago, I thought I would never be able to even walk. I am now walking and jogging, and I aiming to play soccer again by the summer. Not at the level I was playing, but at least be part of the game at some capacity.

Needless to say my tendon feels fully healed, even stronger, the problem I’m having now appears to be some peritoneal tendinitis, which I self diagnosed thru youtube, due to the lack of insurance and physical therapy which I lost last year. I’m back on the boot to try and fix that, and it feels like it is working. I use an ankle brace for now since the tendinitis started, but it feels much better. And like I said, the Achilles feels good, still a little tight, no single calf raises, but I feel confident enough to not even think about it every step I take as I used, I’m even starting to not even think about it.

Hope everybody new and old in this group is getting the help and support you need, I found it in this group for sure in the most dark days of this journey, and as everybody used to tell me “it gets better”

You all take care,
Ed

Ed, it sounds like you’ve really had a tough time of it. I scanned your blog and saw you ruptured again at 18 weeks! Arg! I am so sorry!
Happy Anniversary and congrats on making it through the double trauma. So good to hear that you’re walking and jogging again and that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel for you.
Good luck and keep it up! I hope the peritoneal tendinitis clears up quickly too.

Wow, Ed, I just found your blog. Rerupture at 18 weeks after surgery. From what I read, it looks like the therapist was pushing you do things you were not ready for. You had some complications from surgery which pushed you back, and therefore you were not ready for even single heel raise yel, why on earth was he pushing you to walk on tip toes. I feel sorry for what you had to go through, and glad you are jogging again, and ready for soccer by the summer. I wish you all the best.

Thank you all, today I had a half a mile run!!! :-)
