On Thursday 2/21/02 I was playing raquetball, when I lunged to go after a ball something popped in my leg.
I could hardly get out get out of the Y by myself.
Went to an immediate care the next morning, was told I pulled a muscle I didn’t even need, to ice it for 3 days and heat for 2 and take Ibuprofen 3-4x a day.
Then Wednesday night after working all day and teaching youth group at night I was very swollen and bruises were appearing on my leg and ankle area.
So I made an appointment w/my Dr yesterday 2/28/02 and she couldn’t believe it. Apparently a blood clot is forming and I have torn my Achilles Tendon.
She said our first step is to get the swelling down and dissolve the clot that is forming.
Monday possible MRI and then sent to an orthopedic Dr. Does this sound like the right route to take at this time? From what I am reading looks like surgery is the only option w/a long recovery period to follow.
Thanks for your help! Kim
