Yesterday was 12 weeks since the dreadful day when I re-ruptured. I chose to continue with the non-surgery option. Overall, I have taken things much easier this go round. I believe the first time I thought I was superman and pushed/rushed things way too fast. This aggressive protocol set me up for a re-rupture (partially at 13 wks and fully at 19 wks).
This time I have worked on walking with good form, but stop short of any pain. I now believe I am stronger than the first rupture and have hope that this time things will turn out well. The tendon is starting to firm up and my walking is getting better each day. I can push on the scale about 120 lbs. with the ball of my foot.
Anyway, I am starting to be hopeful. Everything seems to be going well and I plan on incorporating some cycling from here on. Hope all have quick and complete recovery. pk
