    Ruptured achilles

    I ruptured my achilles playing basketball yesterday. Will likely be having surgery next week. Any of you ever have this injury? If yes, what can I expect for rehab/recovery?

    Sara, sorry to hear this. has't happened to me, but my buddy has done this several times (twice one side, once the other). it is not a quick or easy recovery. you need to be patient, and follow the advice of your drs.

    if it was me, i'd find a hobby to occupy the time, and maybe work on upper body while it heals.

    good luck.

    Sorry to hear about your achilles, Sara. On the bright side, what a great opportunity to learn to build your own wheels (Trying to think positive!)
