newsflash** rupturing achilles tendon did not make me smarter

So I have been wearing the boot for a few weeks, using a cane and not using a cane (the cane makes me faster) and things have been going pretty well. I was pain-free when sitting around and the swelling had become fairly negligable. I was not even having to ice at night. Since all was going so well I decided that it would be ok to do some lifting of heavy objects at work. ThisĀ  seemed to not be very bothersome so I movedĀ  on to amazing feats of strength category. By Friday evening I was pretty swollen and ended up back on the dreaded crutches for Saturday and Sunday. Back to ice at night and pain at rest and at walking. I am officially tired of this.

Nice to know my intelligence level has not been changed by this experience

    Glad I’m not alone in this category.

    Not the most patient person around, either.

    I have been doing the same thing. I started PWB a week and a half ago, and two days ago, pushed really hard and dropped a crutch. I then walked around the house most of the day with just the one. The next morning my incision site was on fire, I think from too much friction as I am still in a fibreglass cast. Yesterday, and today I can barely put any weight on it all because the site feels raw. The weight bearing itself feels awesome and I am really #@$%#@ about this setback. It feels like two steps forward and one step back. I was sooo excited two days ago. My patience grows very, very, thin.

    Hey Stageogre - heard you saw Tanya downtown yesterday. she says you’re getting along pretty well from what she could tell - good job! Sorry you had a set back this weekend.

    I too am officially tired of this. I’m back up elevated and icing all day today b/c I left the house for a couple hours to the spa yesterday and my foot is now objecting. Mostly in my heel and incision.

    I like that title - no, this injury will never make us smarter! I keep telling myself: Mary, you wanted to have a break, you LOVE films and books and Internet, now you get to do it for months on end! Be Happy!!! But no, of course, now that I can and must take this extended vacation, I get fed up with all the waiting and passive activities.

    So…it’s onward, onward, onward, and take NO FALSE STEPS!
