acl, meniscal repair. 4 months ago
« on: March 09, 2005, 01:34:57 AM »
well it happened last season (o3/04) and i had it repaired, nov 15 04 . i am 21 i live in lake louise and snowboarding and mountianbiking and skateboarding are my life.although at times i felt like i would never walk again,  in the last 2 months its been all good news, i woke up 1 day and realized my quads were ready to join the team again now my opperated leg is 90% of the muscle mass of the good leg . last month follow up with the surgeon welt verry well he evern told me i could go snowboarding soon.........not that i feel ready for it. but it is good news . i think ill let this heal for the long term , for now its all about balence and control...........and waiting for my hamstring to start firing like i know it can , i guess thats all i have to say for now thanks for reading . if anyone has comments of questions email me
