TWO Years Post Op !!

February 16th, 2015

Just checking in on the Achilles Blog, to announce it’s been two years ago today that I had my left Achilles tendon rupture, surgery!  Now, my right Achilles is acting up!  WTH? Sympathy pains?  I remember while being checked prior to surgery ..the surgeon said "I have more issues with your good Achilles".  He saw then, that I could have a problem.  Any of you had this happen to you?  (waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)  I’ll probably have to spend some time later, reading through some of these current posts.  I’m so glad I found this site two years ago, as are most of us who *unfortunately* are in this club.     Heal well y’all……. it takes time.

No More Shower Chair!! : )

April 13th, 2013

That’s right…..I took my first shower, in over two months now… standing up without the assistance of the shower chair! I’ve now loaned it out to another in need of the chair. Was a God-send while using it, but so happy I’m strong enough to STAND!!

I saw that KOBE BRYANT is probably going to join our ATR “club”. Boy, we feel his pain, right??? Hey Kobe, your peeps should join my peeps here on this amazing ATR Blog, to help you cope with this process you’re going to be going through on your recovery!! Come on, come on over …………

…wow, been a while since I’ve been on here….

10 weeks since “some one kicked me” feeling

7 weeks since surgery

5+ weeks in daz boot….while walking, sitting, sleeping : (

Today’s date:  April 3, 2013

I must admit…..I’m happy that I can walk while in daz boot, happy to air the leg out when relaxing or in the SHOWER (still on shower chair) ;  really enjoy PT 3 times a week,  but back to a bit of depression with all of this!!!  I live in Bullhead City, AZ and our temps are reaching over 90* now, and I’m still unable to get both legs into the pool to cool off.  Hope that next week, I’ll get the all clear, and be able to begin some water aerobics once again.  Heck, just to float on a noodle would be heavenly!     I have added some photos, wonder if they will show up.

Continued healing to all of us.

We have a Western Caribbean Cruise that we are to set sail on….May 11th, 2013 (only 12 weeks post op) …. praying I’ll do fine! Prepared to bring daz boot on the cruise : (

Oh the days ! (& the nights)…..right?

February 27th, 2013

…..its been 30 days since my ATR

…..12 days since my ATR (partial tear/ partial rupture) surgery

… day since stitches were pulled out and one day in “Daz Boot”.

…..3rd adventure outside the house on those CRUTCHES!!!

I’m exhausted!  All I have done is out to lunch, out to the doctors office (hour 1/2 ride both ways) and just had my best night time sleep in a month .. while wearing “Daz Boot”

Thought I’d want to type away, but nope…..going to rest and get back to bloggin’ along later.

I’m so happy to have this site to go to, cuz no one understands unless this has happened to them. I’m still in shock that it wasn’t just someone who kicked me, and didn’t say “I’m sorry”.

Two Words…..*Crutches *Suck!
