Good News, Everyone




I tore my ACL playing volleyball on Saturday!  Now I get to have an MRI, surgery, 7 months of recovery, and a knee brace for 2 years!

When I first read this I read netball and laughed my socks off!

Volleyball isn't so bad (read:funny) though!

ACL tears are nasty work. Can be a real pain in the ass, but surgery isn't so bad. A good bit of physio and you should be back before 7 months.

All the best!

p.s. I hope you're not claustrophobic!

Man, I'm sorry to hear that. I've had to go through surgery and PT for a major injury before...

It sucks.

I wish you all the best.

Ooooh. On the plus side, wheelchair?

Also, pic was genius. Really, honest to fuck, genius.

Thanks for your support, bros.

On the plus side, now I have a legit excuse to play video games and Warhams all day.

Shit yeah! Pass the sauce?

PS - My captcha is Hedbuts. Isn't that just the weirdest?

Man, that's brutal. I have had a lot of knee problems in the past from lacrosse and football, and it's not fun.

Good luck on your recovery!

I'm glad my debilitating injury amuses you :P

On the brighter side of things, at least you have ACLs (unlike Dejuan Blair...).

I expect 10 posts a day once you've had surgery! Goodluck with recovery :).
