Orthopedic doc gave me a cortisone shot in the knee today. He thinks it will fix my ACL-related pain. I hope that's all it takes but I have to go back in 2 weeks if I'm still experiencing problems with my knee. I need a good strong knee to withstand 7 weeks of military training in July and August so hopefully the shot will do the trick.
On the other hand, he gave me a serious talking-to about giving up ice hockey. He's forbidden me to play for now (which is no big deal since it's the summer), but doesn't want me to play again--EVER. I see his point since I have my future in the military to think about but I couldn't promise him anything other than I won't play for now. I can't imagine not playing in the fall.
