ortho appt.

Thursday, April 07, 2011

RESULTS ARE IN .......DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!! Since I injured my leg somewhere in late December and Early Jan. the ortho feels that the results are skewed somewhat so: I had a Fx of the tibial plateau that has/is healing, hence the 'DEEP' bone bruise that still exists on the plateau, I apparently tore the IT band insertion which is also on the mend but not mended! A lot of visible scar tissue and swelling. There also is a visible tear on the lateral head of the gastroc, along with scarring and minor tear of the soleus. But I believe those to be "OLD" injuries. They also said that my ACL was thready, which also is an "OLD" in a nut shell, NO 'HARD ' training for another 6weeks. Then I may resume training but S*L*O*W*L*Y!! (ha). THANKS FOR ALL THE WELL WISHES AND THOUGHTS/PRAYERS! LOVE YOU ALL FOR THINKING OF ME! SO SOME ONE NEEDS TO HOLD ME DOWN FOR ANOTHER 6WEEKS!! ANY TAKERS? JUST KIDDING! emoticon emoticon

    Bummer on the injuries!!! Glad you finally found out what all was wrong and that everything is healing. Six weeks...tough to be "quiet" for that length of time, but very necessary. Do what the doc says, or some of your Spark buddies just might come sit on you! LOL!!

    Sounds like it's time for some more upper body work! LET THAT KNEE HEAL! I am glad that it isn't any worse than that and you will be able to get back on track sooner rather than later. If you really need a volunteer to hold you down..... I love, love, love Colorado and would be more than happy to fill that need! emoticon Now take it easy!
