I knew this would happen. For weeks now, I've barely been able to walk, with my old Achilles tendon playing up again, causing me to limp and hobble and being in pain every minute of the day and night. But the second, the second I manage to get an appointment with my GP, I start to improve and tomorrow I'll look like a total timewaster because I know I'll walk into that surgery without so much as a twitch.

I don't even know why I made the appointment in the first place. I've had this injury for the last 10 years and I've done all the stretching exercises anyone can possibly do in that prolonged period of time, and none of them have helped. I don't think I'll ever be rid of my chronic tendonosis. Except, of course, when I need it to convince my doctor it really is hampering me in my lifestyle. :(

January 17th...getting appointments when we need them seems to be a global medical problem *sigh*

Yeah, I put my faith in physio for my knee too, for exactly the same "avoidance of surgery" reason. But I guess the minimal invasive surgery methodies doctors use today, are quite brilliant.

My cousins are footie players with all their heart and I stopped counting their combined injuries. But I was impressed by the short reconvalescense times they nowadays need ;)

I will keep my fingers crossed that your doctors can either find a way without surgery or that a really good doctor will perform surgery and release you as good as new :)
