I was hamstrung.... literally. My right hamstring tore completely when I was playing in my racquetball league's playoffs. (Yes, I did stretch before starting.) And I can use your help.
The hamstring is the muscle you sit on, just below your butt. When it tears completely, it is disconnected from the pelvis. Slave owners used to hamstring slaves to prevent escape. Hamstring tears usually occur during athletic activity.
When mine tore, two days later, half my thigh turned purple, from the blood from the injury, a day later, a good part of my leg below my knee was also purple. An MRI made it clear that all three parts of my hamstring were completely torn.

I had a complete tear, without avulsion. The surgery is pretty much the same.I had surgery this past Friday and was back to working on the website(at home, in bed) the next day.
It's been bad news. I'm on crutches (found them the day before surgery at a second hand store for $3) and I'm in a hip brace for six weeks. The medical bills are quickly mounting, even though I have health insurance. The next three months are going to be very tough, just getting by. And I haven't really done much to raise donations.
So this is a very tight situation. There's only one way to get through this rough spot. That's with your help. If you've never donated, please make a donation now. If it's been a long time, please come back and make a generous one. If you are not a paid premium member, please purchase a membership.
Or, consider running an ad-- $390 for two weeks, $250 for a week or $650 for four weeks.
I am recovering from the surgery pretty well. I went off the strong pain meds in less than 24 hours and stopped the Naprosyn a few days later. I was afraid of how I'd manage in the shower and on the toilet (the brace prevents your hip from bending more than 45 degrees. So I found a toilet seat raiser on Craigslist for $10 and a shower seat, which I didn't end up needing, for $5). I read that the pain gets worse after two or three days. Fortunately that didn't happen to me. I'm hobbling around, getting used to crutches and
But the medical bills are really a problem. I hope you'll help.
thanks, in advance,
