Seemed just like another Tuesday

11/18/2008 7:30 PM

 

In retrospect maybe I jinxed myself, just before I started my game I joked that I had already peeked! It was Tuesday night and I signed my name on the challenge sheet, there were a few players and I had arrived just as a game was starting, so I realized that I had sometime to warm up. As I watched the game unfold, I streched for at least 10 minutes. I was actually stretching so much that one of the other guys made a comment that I looked like I was going to war.

Since the game was closely contested I found an empty court and started to hit some balls and get a sweat built up. In hind sight you would have thought this was enough! When it was my turn to play I went to the service line served and easily returnable ball that passed me and I turned to get it and then POP!!!!

I hadn’t even played a point and I am laying on the ground, grabbing the back of my foot and there it was a gap where my tendon used to be.

Four hours latter, 2 Thompson tests, a splinted foot and a pair of chrome crutches; I hobbled out of the emergency room with my life after ATR about to begin.

That night I drove home with my left foot, which gave me brief glimpse of how life was going to be post ATR.

    It has been 2 long weeks since I had my surgery and I can honestly say that the sequence of events that immediately followed it, have been interesting to say

    the least. Immediately after the procedure, while I was still in the hospital, I experienced chest pains and had to be monitored closely.

    My doctor suggested 3 more weeks taxi assistant to travel to work. However, my insurance company refuses to cover me for these 3 weeks until the doctor

    provides further information. Do you think that taking public transport is a wise option for me just after taking moon boot off? I feel my left tendon is

    very tightened and cannot raise myself using left foot.
