So this is my first post on this site. I am hoping to get some good info and feedback to help me along in this process.
So here is my story. I am a 37 year old mother of 3 and I work full time and also run a business out of my home. So I am a very busy lady. I am still kind of in shock of what happened and am dealing with it on a daily basis. I am not active. I run occasionally but nothing major so this is not an injury that was caused by sports in anyway. I was bringing groceries into my sisters home when the grocery bag broke and a bottle fell out onto the concrete and shattered. With that a fairly small piece of glass flew up and severed my achilles tendon. There were no other cuts on my leg just a small cut to the back of my ankle and walla I am in the position I am in. It was such a freak accident. I was in the hospital that night and surgery was scheduled for the next day.
I made it through that first two weeks with the help of my mom and my husband. The cast came off after 2 weeks and now I am in the boot from hell!! I hate this boot. I still can’t put any weight on my leg so getting around is rather tough. Thank goodness for the knee scooter. I have to sleep in the boot and the only time I can take it off is when I shower. I am still having some major leg cramping and muscle pain. I am assuming that this is all normal. What’s next? I go back to the doctor on Monday so I am not sure what to expect and not sure when I will be able to head back to work as I am on my feet all day. Physical Therapy I am guess is in my future??
Can someone shed some light as to what my future holds??
