shattered my patella, what now?
So I was walking through a circle pit (moshpit for you oldskools) as it was winding down and I took an unexpected hit from behind. I landed in a perfet kneeling position with all weight on my right knee. I tried to stand up and felt my knee instantly I knew my patella was broken and that i'd most likely need surgery.
Just got out of surgery yesterday and the doc said I have to keep all weight off of my right leg for 6 f-ing weeks! This is a colossal inconvenience for me. I was planning on attending a Royce Gracie seminar in NOLA this month in addition to a stick fighting comp in ohio. Not to mention i was planning on testing for completion of the art in Balintawak FMA. I was also working stronglifts and loving all the squats.
WTF do I do now? Can't really train BJJ or FMA.Should I still go and watch some BJJ classes. I'm pretty sure even limited participation will be out of the question. I've been wanting to achieve my goal of 20 pullups in one set, so I may use my time away from stronglifts to do a greasing the groove routine with pullups. Any bullies have any thoughts of options for my situation?
Also, I just finished school and am looking for work as a radiation therapist, but there is no local work so it may be a while before I can travel and interview. Currently I was waiting tables but as of yesterday, that's out. I suppose i'll if my buddies can get me a desk job for now but my point is money will be tight.
Sorry, for the long thread i'm on some good pain meds and have been in bed at the hospital for the last two days.
