I have a suggestion...
Just keep skiing!
This is the most informative thread I have seen yet on the internet on this injury. I fully ruptured both achilles tendons in a skiing accident in the end of March 2007 and had them surgically reparied a few days later. My goal is to be 100% (or at least 100% functional - albeit with some pain) by the start of the 07/08 season and would love to go to AK at the end of the year. I am very encouraged and informed by the posts here. Thanks everyone for sharing. If some of the folks who posted last year have updates I would love to hear it!!
A friend from work tore his Achilles Saturday at Jay Peak and had surgery this afternoon. I wonder if the chronic problems he had with that tendon played a role -- he has a bone spur that irritates it. It forced him to give up running several years ago.
I had to present a monthly status at work today in my friends place. One part is a list of risks and what is being done to manage them. Since I just came back from knee surgery, I told the third guy on the project that a leg injury for him is now at the top of the list.
Hi I know that this happened to you some time ago. I ruptured mine in May and I am hoping to ski again next March. Do you remember what kind or rehab/PT program you followed. Everytime I ask about doing anything, the doctors tell me not too its very frustrating.
