Saying hello +here’s my story (first time blogger too)

Hi Dennis

 

Thanks for the great blog and this place for us to read and share experience…

Hi guys/gals - Sorry to meet you via this horrid injury but hopefully we can help eachother along…

I ruptured left AT last Tuesday (21 Oct 2008), I had the op a day later. I did not know much about ATR prior to the fateful day so I did not really get to hear many surgical options from my surgeon. I don’t know if I have had the full length cut or the incisions. I am in a fibreglass cast right now and will be seeing the doc tomorrow morning (day 7). He will look at the cut, check for infection, and then we decide what to do.

I am 28, active, play squash, cricket and run. Did my first half marathon 10 days prior to rupture. I ruptured it playing squash… I hear the snap, it still gives me shivers…

Post op, my lovely wife has been doing the caring bit, food, washing, pain meds and moral support.

I am not in much pain, have kept foot up for 6 days now. 3 trips to loo per day. My toes turn purple and my foot feels like exploding after 5 min standing so I will be doing more lying down…

Will know more tomorrow… Just saying howzit for now

Hope to chat to a good few of you over the next few weeks. Strength to all!

Razvan ( oh yes - I am from Cape Town , South Africa)

    Not a bad blog for a first one. And, welcome to our exclusive club, we all have to thank Dennis for setting this up and enabling us give and gain information between ourselves. You will find you cannot start the day without checking the site, it becomes addictive.

    Purple toes will stick around with you for quite a while I’m afraid.

    You will be able to watch the cricket in Antigua!!

    Check out my site and you will know the answer there is only 1 team in Manchester and that is MANCHESTER CITY The team from the other side of the town are actually in Trafford.

    Love to watch the 20 20 at Lancashire County Cricket club, it is so exciting.
