Achilles Tendonitis and Hockey

Hey all,

So about two weeks ago I got hit with some inflammation of the Achilles tendon, commonly known as acute achilles tendonitis. For the past week I have been following a regiment of ice, NSAIDs and rest (no gym at all).

I've reached a point now where I feel absolutely no pain. There is still a little bump on the back of my heel though that no longer hurts when my foot is in a running shoe, but still feels a little uncomfortable in skates. Historically the pain disappears after a few laps around the ice in warmups, and doesn't re-emerge until the next morning.

So with that in mind, I'm wondering what to do this week. Should I go back to hockey, or just stick to the gym and keep the skates at home for another week? I figure that it would suck to aggravate the tendon again and have to sit for another two weeks, but on the other hand I really don't want to be sitting around and missing games this close to the end of the season!
