Well it has been ages since I blogged.  Fort those who may remember me, in January 2011 (yes it has been over a year) I had the first of three (January 31, April 8, and August 26) Fat/PRP injections into my left achilles tendon.  

On Monday of this week I did another follow-up visit with my physician.  As background, I will say that I have finally started to feel quite a bit better.  When I wake up most mornings the pain/stiffness is much more minimal than it has been now for almost two years.  I even went to the outdoor retailer convention where I got a pair of black Altra Instinct with the hopes that I might soon be cleared to run again.  However, although I continue to make progress as confirmed on the ultrasound images, my achilles is still painful to the touch, and I have not been cleared to run.  Of course, I could just run through the discomfort and pain, but that's what caused the damage in the first place.  Because my goal is to actually regenerate the achilles tendon and heal, it seems likely that I will lose another season of running.
