I ruptured my rt Achilles on June 28th playing softball. Very freak play. I reached up for the line drive and felt like I got shot. I felt and heard the pop. Went to ER and they drugged me up and casted me up so I could be seen by ortho surgeon the next day. We did an MRI that day but couldn’t get back together until July 2nd. The MRI confirmed the tear. Surgery seemed like the best option due to recovery times and less chance for it to rerupture. I’m fairly athletic at 44 as I just ran my 1st 5K. I had 2 others lined up plus a 10k in the fall.
Any good feedback would help to keep my thoughts as elevated as possible. Thanks
