First off, I think this site is incredible—it has really given me a wealth of information, that I wouldn’t have any other way (my doctor/surgeon certainly isn’t giving me any info)

 

I suffered my injury two days ago (Sunday) playing football—I felt the snap and knew it was serious…went to the ER the same day, they originally thought it might be a partial tear, my orthopedist thought otherwise…full rupture—he scheduled surgery—it’s been a full day since he told me that, and some of the shock has worn off a bit—I mean, I’m 28 yrs old—played sports my whole life, had never been sick, called out of a job, been to an ER, or warn crutches/or a cast….until now….I just can’t believe I’m not going to be able to wear two shoes or walk fully until 2009…over a stupid football game.. L

 

Again, I’ve gotten a lot of good info through this site—my surgery is scheduled for a week from today—then I’m going to take a wk and a half off of work to recover—I should be ok at work after, I work a desk job?

 

I just tried to take my first shower—my cast got wet, not soaked, but it did get wet…hopefully it wont mess anything up…

 

Have to get used to the crutches…and realize I’ll be using them for a while….I just hope I’ll be back to normal after this is all over…
