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.
Good to hear you had a good holiday Reza. As you can see while you were away the numbers have grown.Originally Posted by Reza Taheri
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....
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
P.s. Have you guys heard any news from Damian lately?
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.
