    Torn gastrocnemieus

    popped my calf muscle a bit in class last night. :icon_chee

    has anyone here had to deal with this injury before?

    Doc says it should take about 3 months to heal thoroughly.

    Can't say I had that type of injury before, but I did catch my gastrochnemous on an old rusty car bumper while skateboarding. It bled like a bitch.

    Amputation is the only solution.

    we were working a basic hip throw and on one throw my drill partner didnt really have good technique--I really still don't know exactly how it happened, just that I foolishly tried to reach for the ground with my leg instead of going with the throw even though it wasn't "technically correct."

    ...meh.

    3 months is probably an accurate assesment. I tore my acl a few years back, but with proper rehab I cut my the healing time in half.
