Well today was my 8 week check up and the ortho said all was well. I can’t do weighted squats or weighted lower body excerises yet. He did say that I can start to add movement excercises and light cutting drills when running now. The biggest problem I am facing in my own mind is not to push too hard as my leg feels better.

Hello all, I just found this blog site and have been impressed with the information and the stories.
My story goes like this, 9 years ago I ruptured my left achilles and had it reparied surgically. The recovery was long and painful, almost 6 months before I was back to normal activities. I had a lose of feeling in the back of my leg and infection in the incision. Basically all the side effects that can be had with surgery I had.
On February 22, 2013 I ruptured my right one on a run. This time I opted to not have surgey and just casted it. Well it is 8 weeks post rupture and I have been out of the Air Cast for two weeks and started runing on the treadmill last week. This recovery has gone smooth and amazing. The physiotherapy 3 times a week and the addirional work I do on my own is a big factor. I turn 40 this month and hope to be back to running full bore by the end of May.
I will keep all posted. I have experienced both recovery methods so I welcome questions. I am not against surgery you just need to wiehg your options and it depends on what you lifestyle is.
