    Forgot to mention, in terms of activity - I also play drums, which is very physical and cardio-heavy (during the rockers, anyway).

    A crumb of comfort and confirmation that an ATR is totally random in who it strikes - another high profile, fit, prime of life athlete has fallen foul

    One imagines that Brand was thoroughly warmed up as well.

    Cheers Reza,
    Good to hear you had a good holiday Reza. As you can see while you were away the numbers have grown.

    Good that you are feeling so positive and all is going well I am 9 weeks post op now and walking around without crutches around the house only take one when I am out just in case. I walk with a slight limp as it is still very tight it does loosen up as I walk and can walk normally without a limp if I walk slowly.

    Take care and interested to hear your report from the doctors....
    Chris

    Hey Hey...
    Yap, as I mentioned yesterday I was visiting my surgeon & it went very well... I dont have to use my crutches again & I have start FWB with the Boot on.another 2 weeks to build the muscle strength. after this 2 weeks I have to use the regular shoe with the 2 cm heel difference! which means no wedges only height different.I suppose my surgeon knows what he is doing :-).then at that stage I can use physio!

    Chris---> Thanx, It was a very nice trip with a nice timing.glad to hear that you can walk much easier than before yap unfortunately the numbers have grown! I wish the opposite!
    I'll start swimming next week in Homebush (Olympic stadium)for fastest recovery.

    for the rest I hope you get well soon & get back to freedom soon.

    Fast recovery for all
    Cheers Reza

    P.s. Have you guys heard any news from Damian lately?

    Mike:
    I think it was after the second week of therapy. However, I did them with both feet, at the beginning using mostly my good foot, and little by little shifting weight to the injured foot. Right now, at 6 months post op, I'm almost to the point of doing single heel raises with the injured foot, but I'm not quite yet and I do it very carefully, close to a counter so I can hold on, and with my good foot ready to "pitch in" at any time. I am also scared of another rupture, but somehow your body tells you when you're OK and I'm letting that guide me.

    Hey Canuck 007,
    I also live in Vancouver. Had ATR on June 20th, had surgery 3 days later at St. Paul's. Who is your surgeon & how has your post-op care been? How many weeks post-op did you begin physio? Where were you doing physio? Thanks!

    HEJENB: ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON!

    I didn't quite want to admit some of my friends have been crap, but they have. I don't like to ask for help (Friend in need is a pest, but...) Very selfish society...'I'll let you know when I do my next supermarket shop...shop is 2 miles away.' My closest friends live the furthest away have been brill...taken me out to local restaurant etc

    I work for myself and struggling to collect some debts that hasn't helped my state of mind.

    Playing the drums: Very cool
    Aqua aerobics: sorry jury's out

    Thanks for the laugh.
