I recently found this site and thought it would be cool to keep track of my recovery and learn from others that are farther along the recovery process than I am.
Lets start with a proper intro..My name is Mike ( if my username didn’t already give that away), I’m a 21 year old student at Towson University majoring in Exercise Science. I ruptured my achilles playing intramural basketball on March 10th. When it happened my first thought was, “who the hell threw a basketball at the back of my leg?” Then it dawned on me…my achilles ruptured.
I had my surgery on March 20th. The whole procedure went smoothly and was in and out of the hospital within 5 hours. The worst part was waking up out of surgery, that was the most pain I’ve had during this injury. They left me in a cast after surgery but my doctor quickly took me out of it after 4 days and put me in the boot.
Swelling has greatly decreased and I get to start physical therapy this week, mostly theraband work will be done for the first few visits.
