well its been year since ive been out of work. ive been on workmans comp this whole time. a little more then a year ago i severed my akillies tendon on a piece of metal. it was a clean cut. it felt like a a rubberband snapped in my leg and my leg completely gave out. ive had a total of 3 surgerys just on my foot. thats not including the surgerys i had to get done when i caught mursa from going to the dr office. my dr told me recently that i can return to do what i used to do like playing basketball and riding and so on. my dr gave me a cordazone shot in my left foot last friday. when he did this he hit some nerves and caused a shocking feeling on the side of my foot. i cant even walk without the shocking feeling. ive been tring to see the dr all this past week but his wife went into labor so he wasnt in the office. so between the nerves being messed up and my foot hurting when im done riding im done...it sucks but it is what it is.:disgust: i hope i will be able to ride again soon. and believe me...my lawyer is having a field day because i do physical work and im on my feet anywhere from 8-10 hrs a day and i may never be able to go back to work doing what i used to do. theres no such thing as light duty at pepsi/canada dry. my dr has been tring to send me back to work on light duty and my boss wont take me back until im able to do full duties. im still going through physical theropy 3 days a week. when it rains or is damp or cold out its so uncomfortable. but i guess i will just see what happens.

this was my 3rd surgery back in febuary

mine was a clean cut. if i sit to long it gets stiff. i still get muscle cramps. ive always seen movies were people get there akillies tendon cut. i always has a fear of it happening to me then it happened. i got an infection (mursa) and that put me back for a while. its not fun. i wouldnt wish this on my worse enemy. i didnt start walking on my own until almost march. i still cant walk long distances now or stand for two long with out it hurting or starting to cramp

thanks man, im hoping to be back out soon. i gotta be careful because my lawyer told me that my workmans comp could have people out watching me with out me knowing since i have a lawsuit pending against them. kept in touch. i can still go out but i cant ride. even though its gonna be tempting.

Oh yeah, that bitch would throb like no other as soon as I took it from horizontal.
mine feels like someone is constantly stabbing me in my heal!!! the colder and damper it gets the worse it feels. last summer we got 6 or 7' of snow which is a lot for us and it was the worst. sometimes i wake up in the middle on the night because i get charlie horses in my calf and my foot cramps up. ive been taking muscle relaxers and different types on meds for the discomfort. lately ive been tring lcy hot and thats not working.
