Hello everyone. I ventured back here to see what was going on in the ATR world. I just wanted to give some positive news for people who are just starting out in this long process. I have stated in my earlier blogs that I had a great doctor and a quick recovery. I am now 3 months shy of 2 years since my achilles tore playing basketball. This sport seems to be a common theme among all of these reports.
I returned to playing basketball 8 months from my injury. I was a bit nervous, but all went well. I have now been playing 2-3 times per week for the past year plus. I also am able to run 2-3 miles and do everything that I was able to do before my injury. I have spoken to people who have blown out there knees and never recovered, so I guess the achilles was better to injure than my knees.
I guess I just wanted to say keep the faith. I know that right now it seems like you are going through hell, which you are. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. You WILL return back to your old self and be able to do all of the things you love to do. I have made it and so can you. Good Luck.
