The achilles tear/rupture is totally random, it can happen to anyone in any condition, Kobe was in his best shape last season after having dropped like 20 pounds in the off-season and looked 5 years younger, yet he tore his on a simple drive attempt.

And I'm happy for the OP, I remember reading this last year.

Proud to say I was first post Congrats, Thorpe. That achilles tear sounds brutal so I'm glad that you're recovering good.

Last night was my fourth game back. Haven't been pushing too much. Like 2 five minute stints. But last night our PG was missing, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I had 11 at the half and a few wow passes. Too many turnovers. And a couple ugly threes. But I had a good sweat and felt good.

As the second half started, I was at the top of the 2-3. A screen was set on me for their shooter to get over. I got on top of it, and as I went bye, the screener opened to roll, and stepped on my left heel.

That same nauseating stretch, the tell tale pop, and my left Achilles is gone now too.

Met with Orthopedist this morning. MRI tomorrow. Then we meet again tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully we can get surgery in this week.

Serious question.

Is this something that REALLY requires surgery?

I mean itd be one thing if your game was your career and you needed the absolute surest and quickest recovery. But in cases like this... I feel like this is just lining the doctors pockets. Muscle tears heal on their own dont they? If youre not a pro athlete, Id be skeptical surgery is REALLY necessary.

Doctors are no different than mechanics, lawyers, salesmen, politicians, or in other words HUMANS. They will pad a bill to help pay the mortgage on their beach house without batting an eye, and its easy to do bc everyone just figures "hey, hes the expert, better do what he says."

It irks me that medical professionals basically have free reign to prescribe whatever they want bc nobody else knows better, and it ends up affecting health costs and premiums to their gain at the expense of everyone else.


I mean no offense thorpe, but like most here youre a middle aged guy whose best athletic days are behind him. Do you really need to go under the knife for this??

Small tears do heal. Complete separation of tendons do not. This is about being able to function again .

I dont think you realize what his injury was. This wasnt a small muscle tear, it was a complete separation of the tendon from the bone. I would say it was neccessary but, then again, I like being able to walk.

Pulled my groin yesterday

there was a turnover, I was running on the left, old ass dude was half assin it on the right, little spanish dude had the ball in the middle. 3(2 and a half) on 2 break. spanish dude pass to me, took a hard dribble, elevated and dunked on some tall goofy white guy. The rim broke and I fell awkwardly but I was alright. As everyone was joking around about breaking the rim I saw the tall goofy guys girl watching(why do tall goofy lookin dudes always have hot girls?) I went up to her and started dancing and she smiled, then I did the splits and pulled my groin. Got back up without any hands though. Saved face.
