All you ever wanted to know about my posterior tibialis

Apparently the posterior tibialis is a tendon that attaches my tibial muscle to the underside of my foot, and is used for flexing the foot when walking... It is also the tendon, or one of them or something, that keeps me from having flat feet... I tore it when I fell.

So ... now I have 6-8 weeks in a walking cast, then the doc will "re-evaluate" to decide if I need surgery or not. and I can't drive.

Always one to look on the bright side, I'll point out that my right hand has healed sufficiently that I can now resume wiping with my right hand. This may sound like a small thing, but wipe with your off hand a few times and I'm sure you'll agree that this is a huge milestone for me.
