Surgery

May 13th, 2013 at 01:40 am

In case you haven't read in my previous postings, while I was in Afghanistan I fell off a trailer (while getting off the trailer...) and injured my knee. This occurred in late Nov 2012. I've been having issues since.

I've received physical therapy for approximately three months. Both in Afghanistan and in the states. I was informed that when I arrived back at the states that I would get an MRI.

I never did get an x-ray until I arrived back in the states but it still wasn't until the beginning of April 2013 when that occurred. I finally received an MRI which I had been requesting since January 2013.

I have been officially diagnosed as having a torn ACL....

I have finally been scheduled for surgery to fix this. My surgery is scheduled for the beginning of June 2013...

So by the time I've had surgery I would have been injured for a total of six months.

Awesome...

I'll have a month of intense rehab after the surgery and will be laid up for some of that time probably. But at least I know that I won't really be buying anything at that time (such as groceries) since I'll be living with my parents during recuperation. Then back home because actual rehab lasts about nine to eighteen months.

Wish me luck!...
