with my family for Canadian Thanksgiving......having a great time look at all the super cute baby animals and then I tripped on a wet floor in the gorilla cage and I fractured my patella on the lateral side and re tore/made my ACL/MCL tear worse.
I'm back on crutches and in a zimmer brace. I can't put any weight on my foot. I'm back at square one. Awesome huh?
They took x rays again. There is a new fracture/evulsion on the lateral side now, as opposed to the medial side from the first injury. The medial fracture was healing nicely, but he saw a bunch of torn scar tissue, so I re injured that too.
So they're re-referring me to the cast clinic where I'll see another orthopedic surgeon. Hopefully they'll push for an MRI faster because this is a re-occurance and now I'll most likely 100% need surgery now. Beautiful.
FYI- An evulsion is when the ligament(in my case) tears off the bone taking a portion of the bone along with the torn ligament.
I have super mixed feelings about what is going on right now. I was just starting to work out again. I was loving all the freedoms and I was starting to feel normal again. I had just learned how to walk heel to toe, rather than toe to heel like I had been in the brace...now I'm back to toe-heel.
I'm off work again. Ugh. ha.
