Torn ligament- this can't be good.
Pretty sure I tore a ligament in my knee today. The good, previously uninjured knee. Leg got caught as I was bringing it down from the kick, and something went "POP" really loud, and then I was curled up in a ball on the floor.
Thankfully our new white belt is trained to be an EMT, and one of the instructors has training too. Both are also law enforcement officers. I said to them "I need an adult and I'm calling the police!" They chuckled a bit and checked my pupils, heh.
Looks like torn ligaments don't tend to fix themselves and require surgery. I might not be able to practice or train for a good 6 months or more...
Feeling some despair right now.
Ever get a torn ligament in your knee? Did you have surgery? Are you still able to fight? How long after surgery, if you had it, did it take for you to be able to train and fight again?
****, I am beginning to think I'm cursed to be a perpetual gimp. D:
