First Post Post-Surgery

Published by srcamm at 1:30 pm under Uncategorized

First day back at work after my repair last Monday the 30th. Full repair of a complete rupture in my right tendon torn when running sprints at the gym. Still in half cast and crutches, but pretty sure going into the boo on Wednesday which is my first coop.

I am an athletic 45 year old who likes to work out and be active. I also need to manage 3 kids, one of which is special needs, so the quicker the recovery, the better.

Does anyone have any links to successful recovery programs that “safely” beat the 6 month usual? I rehabbed a completely form left bicep tendon two years ago in record time.

    Hmmm, sounds kind of famillar: 45(ish) year old active male, complete rupture doing sprints, surgical repair, back at work in a little over a week, going into a boot early, etc…

    I’m not too far away from my 6month mark. I wouldn’t call myself 100% yet, but it’s not stopping me from doing anything (I just can’t quite do them as fast yet). I was back to almost all of my activities several months ago. You might find some tips/ideas/perspective reading through my blog.

    Good luck!
