    Default Its been a while, an update about me...

    Hey guys,

    Its been a while since I've logged in and posted, so I figured I'd stop by and say 'whats up!'

    Some of you may remember my skiing injury in July - I had surgery in September replacing my ACL and PCL, and removing "debris" from my meniscus, as well as "smoothing out" my LCL and MCL. The surgery went well, I started Physical Therapy about 6 weeks post-op and continued 4 hours, 3 days a week until the beginning of January. I'm now doing my own work out and getting ready to get back in the water, hopefully in April. My ACL is rock solid, and my PCL is getting there - it was my choice to have it done, I knew the "success" rates for a PCL replacement were pretty low, but I figured I might as well go for it, as it couldn't be any worse than what I started with, lol. So, I've got 1 more post-op appointment with my surgeon and hope to be "released" to normal life (with a brace for sports for a year or so) in March.

    On a lighter note, I've got some sweeeet scars to show off now!


    I miss warm weather, this Michigan snow sucks!

    Glad to hear you're coming along in the rehab. I'm sure thinking about the water is great motivation but I know it's still hard. Hope you're back to 100% soon!

    i do more wakeboarding and surfing then anything but when i wakeboard i feel so much more confident with my brace... i won't have to wear it this summer as i'll be 2 and half years out of acl surgery but i will just to prevent it from happening again. i don't feel like it hinders me much at all but its always in the back of your mind.

    glad to hear things are going well... the rehab always pays off!

    It took me 1 full year to get to about 90% of where I was pre-injury/surgery. The rest came in the 6-8 months. As was said, it is always in the back of my mind. Everything works in my knee, but I have some pain sometimes and my range of motion is "normal" but not like the other leg.
    Good luck with the rest of rehab. Don't get down if you feel "less than 100%" this year. It will come.

    Coolie- I'm glad you're on your way back. Because of you I bought a travel case for my Radar Senate and won't ever borrow a ski again! Hang in there man- the ice will melt soon!

    OUCH! Glad to hear you are healing nicely! That sounds like a pretty extensive injury. You will be back in the water cutting it up before you know it!
