Busted my knee

For those that knew and are curious, or those that didn’t but wondered at the title, here’s the story.

Thursday night at indoor soccer, my knee went sideways (ie the whole joint, not just the cap or something). They’re not designed for that. I went to the docs friday, they were concerned about it, I had an MRI scan today, and the letter from there to my doc says I’ve done a complete ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tear as well as other minor associated injuries to my knee.

The short story is I think it means no strenuous activity for my knees the next year or so and an op in about 5 weeks or so to get the ligament replaced.

I’m a bit sore, a bit annoyed I miss skiing this year – been looking forward to it all year since I went for the first time last year, but otherwise nothing I haven’t done before, so I’ll be right. Catchyas all when I seeya next!

Edit: Operation booked for July 25th.


  1. Hey!! you know what the exact same thing has happened wid me and am really scared abt the operation and am terrified abt the rest period tht’ll follow ..

    so did the operation go well?

  2. Hey, sorry about the delayed response – I didn’t know people actually read this that didn’t know me!

    Well I’m a year post-op now, just gotta book in for the checkup appt with my doc and then I can get back to it. The first few weeks are a real pain (literally and figuratively), but once you get past that and can walk around unaided it’s not so bad. Then it’s just a matter of self-discipline to keep doing the exercises etc for rehab.
