    Whilst player footie, changed direction, went to set off and TWANG - KERTHUNG........... fcuking hurt too. Anyway, that was 7 weeks ago. First 4 weeks I could not walk properly, then started gradually. Now walking fine and really missing footie.

    When is the right time to return? What signs, other than road or zodiac, should I look for?

    FYI - Male, 39
  2. IF you can walk ok (No pain at all & you have 95-100% movement back at the foot/ankle & knee) - Start jogging then build up when you can run 100% no oain start on Sport specific movements- try some shuttle runs, slalom runs, sprints etc. Make sure you stay nice & flexible- have a good stretch AFTER exercise holding each for upto 30-40 secs.

    The main sign to go by is pain... But if your movement is back 100% & you have v little pain when running get back to the footie drills & see what happens! You could probably benifit from some massage aswell!

    If you are female and mega fit, well not even that fit but a spot on body, I will accept your kind offer for a naked massage, with extras?

    I waited and waited and no massage given! I am now going to get dressed, after wiping off the strawberry yoghurt and had prepped for your benefit, and off to play golf
  8. many apologies for making you wait so long, not very professional of me is it?!
    too bad about the starwberry yoghurt!

    I hope your round of golf was enjoyable!
