No one deserves that sort of prolonged uncertainty and pain. 14 months? God damn.

Stay strong, man.

After two MRI's and several trips to different specialists (4 in total), I finally found a surgeon willing to operate on me and cut me open and see with his own eyes...as the two MRI's came back inconclusive.

The result - I both tore and stretched my ACL. Now that 14 months has passed, he was and will be unable to sew it back together...so that's why I require further surgery. He'll likely have to cut some ligaments from my achilles and reconstruct my ACL from scratch (with other body parts...good times. What makes this complicated, is that I have a titanium implant in my leg from hip to knee, and he said that's going to complicate things. So, the short of it all, I have been without a ****ing ACL for 14 months!!! *sigh*

Anyways, enough of that.

I feel like **** and am in considerable pain. Been sick to my stomach and all that fun stuff. Back to bed rest and sleep for me.

I'll do my best to catch the Flyers game tonight, but it will probably be watching me.

Thank you again for the well wishes folks, you guys are a awesome group.



Let's Go Flyers!!!
Wow that sounds incredibly painful, good luck to you and I wish you a full and speedy recovery

Wow, no ACL for over a year. That blows my friend. Glad to hear the problem has been diagnosed, sorry to hear that you'll need further procedures done. It will all be over soon enough. Rest up and get back for the playoffs!!!!!

Despite spending considerable amounts of time on this board, I am definitely not part of the regular crew. But in any case, that injury sounds... challenging, to say the least. I feel that I need to wish you the best of luck, Opus, and Timmonen-like fortitude!!!

You've got me trumped on any injury period. Heal up, and get ready for playoff hockey!

Hope you're feeling better! That completely sucks dude. I'm still having a ****** time with my knee and I didn't even tear anything. At least I don't think I did. I can just imagine what that feels like on top of your robot leg.
