I promised that I would keep updating people on my torn Achilles injury because my hope is to help others who have gone through the same thing to share with them the truth of how long recovery truly takes.
I'm writing this for all the people who will stumble upon it after they rupture or tear their Achilles. Hopefully, this will be of help to you. Here's some background: I'm 43 years old, a runner and in good shape. Back on June 26, 2014, I tore my Achilles in my left leg playing racquetball with my wife. My family and I were on vacation so I went to urgent care the next day, found out the injury wasn't a break from an x-ray, and was wrapped up and given crutches.
