Just short of 9 Months…Update

Posted at 7:48 am under Uncategorized

Man, I sure haven’t been here in awhile.  I guess that since I have been pretty much back to normal, I haven’t thought of these days lately.  I made it back!!!  About a month ago, I started to play basketball again, which is how I began this journey in the first place.  I was extremely nervous the first night I played.  I don’t wear a brace because my surgeon said there really isn’t anything that will help.  I just make sure that I stretch out real good and warm up with some jogging before hand.  I have gotten myself in very good shape since this whole journey began.  I am very dedicated to the gym and the treadmill.  Anyways, basketball went very well and I have been playing once a week for about a month now.  It feels great, because I really enjoy playing.  I just wanted to say to everyone..Keep your chin up, it won’t be long and you will be back to normal.

    I was wondering if your doctor has said anything to you about the possibility of another rupture. I worry about doing this again, but I don’t want to give up the activities that I enjoy as well. Congrats on your recovery and getting back in the game!

    Honestly, I have not been to doctor since 3 month check-up. He released me then. I went to PT for another month then was let go. I spoke to him about playing basketball again at around the 8 month mark and he told me to go for it pending on how everything feels. I am still a little nervous about it though. also, I have been running on the treadmill for 4-5 months. I think that helps a lot.
