Went for a run on Wednesday night. Was not long into it and started to do some sprints after my warm up. Finished a couple of run throughs, then i turned, pushed off, and snap. I hit the deck straight away but had no pain. I didn’t know what had happened. I could see my foot and ankle in the street lights. As i looked i realised what had happened. Having had many ankle injuries before i knew it was totally different. I looked at my foot, i couldn’t see where my achilles once was. It was strange. There was very little pain but i knew it was gone. I didn’t know what to do. Shuffling off the road and on to a driveway, i sat puzzled what to do next. I had no phone and i was in a quiet street. i managed to get to my feet. I felt weird. Still little pain and i had no strength in my left foot. I could still move it. I walked but to my house with great care, where i told my wife. We both couldn’t believe it. I waited for some friends to arrive and went off to hospital.I got through emergency quite quickly and after confirming that the tendon was completely snapped 100%, i had to wait for an operating theatre to be available. They said it would be sometime Thursday afternoon or night. about 11pm i had a general anesthetic and it was done.Recovery after the op was a blur. The general was great in numbing everything. But when that wore off pain set in. Thanx to my nurses who where fantastic, apart from not getting a bacon & egg Mcmuffin in the morning. They were very big on pain management, knowing my injury heal as quick if i was in pain.Came home on friday afternoon to become aquainted to the couch for the next 2 weeks. Surgeon has told me very limited mobility until wound heals, then reasonable movement on crutches for the next 4.I’m taking one day at a time at the. Leading an active lifestyle in employment and leisure, i’m hoping that everything heals successfully and resume life as normal. Only time will tell.
