My journey since June 24

Posted on July 21st, 2011 in Uncategorized by quepasa18

Hello everyone!  I have found the blogs on this site very helpful in the last month since I ruptured my Achilles and thought I would contribute for others in the future.

I thought taking tennis lessons this summer would be a really great idea.  Well, I had all of one lesson, on June 22.  Then, on June 24 (a Friday) I was practicing with my sister-in-law.  We were about 5 minutes from being done, when I felt what turned out to be the classic symptoms of an Achilles rupture.  I heard a loud pop and thought that a tennis ball had hit me in the back of the ankle.  But when I fell and looked down at my leg, it was obvious my Achilles was no longer where it was supposed to be.  My sister-in-law called my parents, who took me to the emergency room.  I was put in a splint, sent home for the weekend, and told to make an appointment with another doctor for the following Monday.  My husband was able to borrow crutches from a co-worker, but I spent most of the weekend on the couch with my leg elevated and icing every hour or so.

I think with that, I’ll end this post and will create a new one for each significant day until now.  I think that’ll be easier to read for everyone.
