Very interested in your last post im a few days behind you i believe, I ruptured my left quad on my first day of my holiday (14/09/2010) in Cuba falling from a broken path, The doctor wasn,t sure what i had done and Within a day i was up with crouches and getting around quite well and by the time our holiday was up flew back to the UK.
Arriving back home visited my local sports injury clinic but was refered to accident and emergency at the hospital and in turn x-rays taken and refered to out patients to be told the bad news.
Being 51yrs old and self employed ie no work no pay felt very cheesed off and fed up.
Had Surgery on the 8th of Oct and spent 3 nights in hospital no pain but the full length cast a real bind ,how much do you miss the use of a leg but getting on well with the crouches.
Due to have staples out next few days therfore very interested in your post it must have been very scary and hope all is good (or good as it can be)with you now,I was prescribed some blood thinning and have to inject into stomach once a day not nice but should help with the dreaded clots,was given 6 weeks supply !!!!
This forum is so very interesting and I admire everybodys efforts within , I also would like any replys as to at what stage you all began to go back to work.so i can begin to look forward to it.
Two weeks since surgery another week and im half way with the cast yippee trying to keep positive
