6 weeks ago, after an accident in a footy game, I was told I had torn my ACL. I went to see two Surgeons; one told me it was fully torn and another thought only partial and so referred me to get another MRI scan. I had this second MRI scan yesterday and results have come back saying that it’s only a partial tear with some slight meniscus damage. Today I took my results to the colleague of the first doctor that had said it was full torn and I would need surgery... he said he thinks the ACL is already starting to heal itself and that because my knee is stable and I have no pain, I won’t need surgery. Over the next few weeks I will work with the physio to try and get back to normal movement and will have a check up with the doctor in 5 weeks. Just in case, next week I will see the second doctor who sent me for the second MRI and make sure the opinions line up 👍
I am so happy that I have worked really hard over the last 6 weeks, in the gym most days, eating well and not drinking. There’s been some low moments but it’s been a good experience and I know if I do injure myself again in the future then I will know what to do.
Thanks to everyone for their support over the last few weeks, it’s really helped. Trying not to get ahead of myself but I cannot wait to get back training normally and back in to the game 👌 ☀️ 🍺 🏈 😃 #rehab #silverlinings #positivity #friends #hamburg #footy
