ACL injury

Monday, February 06, 2012

This sucks! 2 days into my 1 week ski vacation I injured myself badly. I was coming around a turn taking short stop and my left ski turned the wrong direction and twisted my knee. I heard and felt a little pop, excruciating pain for about 30 seconds and that was that. Ski season and marathon training is now over for me for at least 2 months. The ski patrol took me down to the emergency clinic and the doctor says I have torn my ACL and it's the most common ski injury. I will probably need surgery given my active lifstyle. It can happen to anyone at anytime no matter how careful you are. So now I'm sitting in the hotel entertaining myself with tv and SP.
For my German friends here, ACL tear = Kreuzbandriss

    Oooh, I am so sorry to hear about the ACL injury. I've been told that it is one of the longest injuries to rehab from. Being fit will probably make recovery better, hopefully.
