You will be in an altered state for many moons...

If your Achilles tendon is ruptured, torn, or even simply inflamed with tendonitis, your life is about to change. Mine sure has - so I decided to chronicle these events, and create a place for others to share their experiences, advice, resources and emotions during our journey toward recovery.

Nothing in this blog is meant to take the place of the medical advice of your physician. Follow the instructions of your medical professionals, not me.

8. Uh Oh, here comes the pain!

Well, I guess it was too good to be true.  Apparently, one's ankle cannot be sawed on with sharp instruments, pried open, manipulated, and then stitched back with sharp needles without eventually protesting LOUDLY.  Pain has moved in and refuses to leave the building. 

My heel is burning like it's on fire, and my toes are numb and red.  I wonder if this is normal?  I can't get comfortable, and I'm wondering if I'm in danger of overdosing on Vicodin!

I guess if I can coherently write this, I'm probably not in much danger...
