Ruptured it playing tennis

This is my first post. I ruptured my right Achilles tendon playing tennis on the evening of September 24, 2008. I heard a loud pop; others around me heard it as well. Immediately I could not really moved that foot. The pain was little and bearable; however, I still visited the ER to get it checked out. It was confirmed - complete right achilles ruptured. I will be going in for orthopedic surgery this Friday, October 3, 2008.
