June 4, 2008: Left knee ACL injury

On June 4th, I twisted my knee and had to go to the ER. Melissa convinced me to go, after I had felt that I'd be okay to go to work that night. It turns out that there was a lot of swelling, and since then, I haven't been able to walk/stand/drive.

A week later I went to orthopedics and they couldn't make a confirmed diagnosis on my knee. They knew something was torn, but couldn't tell me what. So, I had to get an MRI done.

I went to the doctor again and they informed me that I had indeed torn my ACL, and that I would need reconstructive surgery if I wanted to play any sports that required pivoting quickly.

I have an appointment with a surgeon next Thursday to discuss my options.

We'll see how it goes.
