A little about me and my injury

Published by srcamm at 12:24 pm under Uncategorized

Im, 45 years old with 3 wonderful children and a great wife. One of my children (Sam) ┬áis special needs, who requires lots of running after and support. I’ve always been athletic, and needed to remain so in order to chase (Sam) around, and make sure he does not dart out into traffic etc. I was completing my last sprint in a Boot camp program when my right Achilles ripped in half. Textbook symptoms. I looked behind be to curse out the person who stepped on my leg, but no one was there. I knew right there what happened, and started planning my recovery.

Almost 2 years ago I completely tore my left bicep tendon from the bone, and rehabbed that in record time, so I have a little experience knowing and rehabbing my own body. The achilles seems a little trickier. Dr told my wife while I was still out on general anesthesia that I could not drive for 6 weeks. I drove to work today with no issues. I have my first post-op tomorrow, and will learn more.

If there is anyone out there willing to share tips and tricks to “safe” success in speedy recovery , I am all ears.

    If you install the ATR timeline widget, we’ll be able to follow your progress more easily. Sounds like you had surgery? There are tons of tips and tricks throughout this site, so dig in. ;-) The protocol at bit.ly/UWOProtocol produced excellent results (w/ & w/o surgery), so I’d print it out, and try to follow it. And share it with your Doc if he wants you to go slower.
