          1. Your most recent injury: Torn Achilles Tendon

          2. Cause (please be as detailed as possible): Bad luck. Cause isn't totally known but likely just had enough pressure on my foot in the wrong way.

          3. Your initial diagnosis: When the achilles ruptures you feel like you got kicked in the heel and it makes an audible popping sound that others can hear. Hard to miss.

          4. Medical diagnosis: Completely severed achilles tendon approximately 3 inches above my heel. The top portion retracted into my calf and the bottom into my heel like a broken rubber band.

          5. Time and place of injury: Stand up sparring End of August 2005.

          6. Sensation during occurrence of injury (including a rating, between 1 and 10 of the pain): About a 5 when it happens although I did fall down. Not alot of pain just sitting down, but walking is hellish (11 or 12).

          7. What activities may have contributed to the likelihood of this injury? Sparring.

          8. Method of treatment: Immediately iced and drove to the ER. Hard cast for 3 days then surgery. The surgery shaved the severed ends smooth and then reconnected them to each other. My foot was immobilized at a downward angle for several weeks after that in a hard cast. The angle is necessary as the tendon is shortened in the surgery and must be restretched through therapy. After the hard cast I had a wrapped splint and crutches for several weeks. Every few hours I had to take the splint off and have someone try and push my foot to where it was flat. Approx one month after the surgery once my foot could bend to flat I was put in a large walking brace and gradually allowed to put weight on it. This lasted for 6 weeks and I was off crutches and allowed to walk with shoes. 6 weeks after that I began working on calf raises and stretching the foot beyond parallel.


          9. Recovery time: I was cleared to gradually resume MA training approx 5 months after the surgery. Full recover will take another 6 months at least.

          10: Current status of injury (including a pain rating between 1 and 10:
          3- I have no feeling on the right side of my foot below the ankle and some residual swelling. Certain kicks are difficult and right over left closed guard is quite painful as it rubs the scar. Every once in a while I get pain and have to sit down but its manageable.

          11. Please state your style of MA (including the style you were practicing when the injury occurred): Kali, MT, BJJ, and TKD. Was injured sparring standup.

          12. Cost:
          ER+Surgery+Anesthesia+Braces+Yoga+Follow up Doctor Visits- approx: $15k plus 2 weeks sick leave from work while on vicodin. I didn't do PT as I was making progress and following docs orders strictly so it wasn't needed. Yoga helped a ton and I wish I could afford to do it more. Insurance covered 100% except the yoga. I was also unable to drive for until the walking boot was off but fortunately live with someone I work with.

                  How do peoples' martial arts injuries feel it would limit (or not limit) them for a real life encounter, or bug them later on in life?

                    broke my fukking arm sparring at the gym a few days ago...... sux.

                    was cranked out at an ugly Z-saped angle, now its straigt at least.

                    have to decide whether to get titanium plate or let it heal naturaly w/ cast.

                    broke my other arm sparring in '97 and it healed fully, hopefully this one will be full strentgh again soon. cause i want to fight in sept, will try to train around it and hope for the best. i swear, sometimes i feel like i'm cursed...

                          1. Your most recent injury: Broken or fractured rib (not sure, see below)

                          2. Cause (please be as detailed as possible): Tried to do an armbar - forgot to sqeeze knees - got picked up and body slammed and then side mounted.

                          3. Your initial diagnosis: I hope that popping sound wasn't my ribs...

                          4. Medical diagnosis: "Emergency wait's eight hours, son." - Google search to discover that doctors don't treat broken or fractured ribs - didn't bother seeing a doctor.

                          5. Time and place of injury: Around Halloween 2006, at my MMA class.

                          6. Sensation during occurrence of injury (including a rating, between 1 and 10 of the pain): Popping sound/sensation in chest - mild discomfort for rest of roll. pain :2. Ten minutes later: sharp chest pain, popping, grinding sensation while walking home. Pain: 7.5

                          7. What activities may have contributed to the likelihood of this injury? Being in an MMA class: Sucking at armbarring - having gotten hit in that spot with a hook recently.

                          8. Method of treatment: Painkillers, rest. After 6 weeks, low-intensity exercise (push-ups, hindu squats, leg elevation)

                          9. Recovery time: estimated 9 weeks. Almost all better right now, hopefully.

                          10: Current status of injury (including a pain rating between 1 and 10: 0.5. Rib feels a little funny and sometimes it hurts if I sleep on that side. I still can't bench press anything because it feels like my lungs are being shredded.

                          11. Please state your style of MA (including the style you were practicing when the injury occurred): Kickboxing/Muay thai, Injury occurred during my second MMA class.

                          12. Cost: $10 or so for some more advil.

                          My chest hurts if I lie down on my stomach or back, and if someone puts their weight on my chest it feels like it's going to pop again. The rib feels a bit deformed now; maybe I should have seen a doctor after all?

                          A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

                              Naaaah, this deformed rib has character god dammit. So what if I can never train again? Now I can rest chilled drinks on my protruding rib while I stand.

                                Maybe you could rip half of it off, and grow a chick from it, just like God did. Then you could whore yourself out without getting a sore arse and gonorrhoea.
