Incase you haven’t been following my tweets or Facebook status updates, here’s a quick update on what they’ve done to my knee.
There was a lot more wrong with the knee than first thought. I had a tear in my ACL, Tear in the meniscus that had healed but they smoothed it out, Chondroplasty which is basically shaving lose cartlidge behind the knee cap. The big thing causing the instability is that the force of impact in the knee from the 2007 injury had moved my kneecap out of place. Not dislocating it, but it’s not aligned properly.
Overall I’m feeling good and rather pain free. My knee squeaks like a dog’s squeaky toy, but otherwise, I’m quite content with getting better and taking my time with it.
I’m 100% confident that I’ll return from this stronger and better player.
