2nd game into my soccer comeback (20+ years since college) and I totally rupture my left AT. I thought someone had kicked me in the calf but once I stopped rolling around on the ground was told that no one was around me. Hmmmm, I knew what happened. I had just talked to my brother who said he ‘retired’ from over 40 soccer because he was afraid of rupturing his AT…..nice! So, today marks 2 weeks since my surgery. I am looking forward to see what challenges lie ahead for me in this recovery. I have never had surgery so this was a new experience. I’m extremely active, I love to run and compete in sprint tri’s…which I understand I wont be doing for a long time. I guess it was time for me to slow down……My family leaves for Disney in 5 days and I had to cancel. Oh well….I’m set to see the doc on 4/14, he said he might get me into a boot and wants me to start ankle exercises…cant wait!!
