Well it’s official.Â I have now seriously injured all four of my limbs! A couple of months ago (almost exactly 2), I completely tore my right knee’s anterior cruciate ligament playing soccer as mentioned in a previous post here.Â Anyway, the long wait till the operation was finally over wednesday 2 weeks ago, I went into hospital at the non-existant hour of 7am, and was off to the operating theatre by 9.30am.
When I got in there, they were all talking around me and to me waiting for the anesthetic to kick in.Â I think I was taking a bit long as they told me to take some deeper breaths while holding the mask over my face. 😛 So I stopped talking back then, took a couple of deep swigs, and next thing I know, I was waking up (sorta) in recovery.Â As usual when I have general anesthetics, I woke up shivering, but that was fixed with some blankets.Â Very tired for a few hours obviously.
Anyway, long story short, the op went well, I’m back at work as of today and getting around on crutches.Â Soon enough I’ll be able to ditch those and a massive brace I wear most of the daytimes, then begin the long road of rehab to get back to playing sport again.
Oh, for anyone curious, the “matching pair” is in reference to my left knee which I did 5 or so years ago.Â I’ve also broken both wrists (at separate times). 😀
