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!!

  1. Well . . . I hope your healing goes well. It sounds like your doc may be progressive enough to get you on the road sooner than later. Keep us up on your progress or feel free to vent. I was probably most frustrated at 2.4 - 3 wks, so hang in there. Good healing!

  2. Check out bit.ly/UWOProtocol for a good fast modern protocol that produced excellent results (with and without surgery). That study and its results are on this site, at achillesblog.com/files/2008/03/jbjsi01401v1.pdf . If your Doc wants you to go slower, or spend longer on crutches (or immobilized, or in casts instead of a boot), ask him why.
