Nick's Medial Plica Excision & Fat Pad 8 Months Post Op

Now coming up to 8 months post op and so far have not seen any vast improvements. The cortisone injection that I had on March 30th 2010 did help ease some of the pain towards the bottom of the kneecap and the last couple of week’s...

How I got here - Part Two

My continuing journey, thanks to those of you sticking with it.  Two years passed and my knee felt as good as it was before the accident. However, later that year I started to get a lot of pain on, and down the inside of the knee, especially  when going upstairs. I have a very high tolerance for pain and just got on with life as you do, taking the odd pain killer when required. After several months the pain started to become too much and I knew there must be something amiss. Again, off to the...

How I got here - Part one

Hi, I have never written a blog before, so please forgive me if you think it uninteresting. I'm writing for me as much for anyone else, therapy if you like. However, if it helps just one person or stops them making the same mistake then I will be very happy.

My story started in March 8 years ago after a skiing accident in Italy. It was a stupid accident actually not like all the exciting black run and race stuff that you hear about. I just got off a ski lift and that was that. I started to slip on the sheet ice and my binding came off one one boot but not the other...

My family is sick of hearing about my TPF

So here I am blogging.  I never thought I would have time to become a blogger - I guess that's just one of the many upsides of this broken leg.  It all started in March at Steamboat Springs.  Had an excellent week of skiing and was feeling great on my 8th and final day of skiing with 7 friends.  Just before lunch, we all took a run together.  I was following behind my friend Ruth who found a spot to catch some air,...

Back to a 'new' normal?

Its weird to say but I think Im back to relative normalcy.  I still cant do certain things like kneel on that knee or run normally (I can when I have to turn off the house alarm, phone or an emergency) but Im doing really good.  Its actually quit comical to watch me try to run, its more like a skip/fast walk.  lol  Its been 5 years and a month since the first surgery, 7 months since the second surgery and 5 months since the third surgery.  I still have all the hardware.  Its really not bothering me that much.  I still have...
