3 weeks in…

Hey thanks everyone, this is really helpful!

As it happens, since my ATR I have had to travel a lot, by car and by plane and I just realized what great culture there is for people with disabilities, specially while in airports (except for some people at Continental in Houston where I had to wait for 15 minutes for someone to push me through immigration).

I just got back home  today again and I feel I can put more weight on the boot without feeling any pain, almost walking slowly around home without crutches, is this normal, did you walk around this early???


3 weeks in…

My achilles popped the morning of Feb. 12, 2011; 8 hours later I was on the operating room without having considered any other option but having surgery. It happened in a jump while playing soccer and it was the most pain I’ve felt since my torn ACL 10 years ago. Since then it has been difficult to carry on routine daily activities. Was in a bandage for a week and now in an aircast. Now the palm of my hands hurt and I am stronger than ever because of the crutches. I feel my leg recovering and I am extremely anxious to start physical therapy. A few questions:
-What should I expect in the following weeks?
-What should I look for in a good PT program?
-When will I will be able to excercise?
-When will I walk again without using crutches?
