Surgery

Hi, yesterday I did surgery on achilles tendon and heel bone. They shaved off peace of heel bone and cleaned tendon that was partially torn. I tried everything not to go to surgery, all possible therapies, but I guess that was only solution. Piece of bone was sticking into tendon and that had to be removed. It was just too painful to continue like this. The surgery wasn't long and not painful a lot. I was awake trough out the whole process. Thank you for all of your support. I'll be back in no time. Peace
