Results are in!…

Filed under Uncategorized

So I got results today, my MRI and Ultrasound look good and I will NOT need surgery.. :o) Apparently it was not a complete rupture and the Dr. said my leg should heal just fine in this boot. He gave me 3 more weeks in the boot and after that I have another appointment to go back and see him. I am very happy with the results I HATE this boot but I know that it is better than having surgery!…
Here is where it gets WEIRD…
I forgot to tell the Dr. about a pain I have running up on my hurt leg (thigh area) I don’t get it all the time but when I do its very uncomfortable!.. So i decided to call the office and have his assitant mention it to him and call me back with his response..
I just heard back from her and she told me the Dr. wants to see me again on Monday (UHHH Noooooo!)!!!… I explained to her that I had just paid a copay today and didn’t want to have to pay one on Monday if I didn’t have to, and the Dr. could give me his response via phone… She told me he wanted to physically see my LEG (why didn’t he look at it when I was there?) yeah sure I know maybe its my fault I forgot to mention the pain, but I still think he should have taken a look at my leg, what do you guys think??
His assistant said the Dr. thinks I should get an MRI on my knee because he wants to make sure I don’t have Knee damage.. WHAT??? I already had an MRI and a Doppler ultrasound …. My knee does NOT hurt!.. Now I am confused he turned my good day into a bad day!.. You guys give me your opinion ….

Hello all you injured ones…

Filed under Uncategorized

I am new to this blog, let me introduce myself. My name is Tania and I am from Houston Tx. Last week I ruptured my Achilles Tendon while I was in kickboxing class, I was on a weight loss mission trying to look my best for my BIG 30th B-day in Puerto Rico (this June) and this injury was a huge set back for me, not working out like normal has depressed me some. I am currently on the “Famous” Boot awaiting an MRI and Doppler Ultrasound to see the extensive damage. I have been online researching this injury ever since, and that is how I came across this blog. I’m glad I did I hope to learn a lot from people with my same dilema. :-/ Its so hard adjusting to life with this boot and the thought of surgery terrifies me… Any advise or suggestions are appreciated…
