    I was sidelined for over 6 months with a knee injury when I was a teenager.

    Why would anyone want to top that? Jesus...

    For your injuries - who knows. They might do the surgeries all at once or have to do one, let it heal for a month and then go back in to do the next one. Depends on the doctor, depends on the true extent of the injuries once they open you up - there can be surprises. The ACL partial they'll probably leave alone depending on the size and location of the tear - you don't want them to mess with that one unless they absolutely have to do so.

    Knee injuries are the big suck - when it rains, I feel the screws in my bones. Tendonitis is another problem. You have to be patient, find the right doctor, the right rehab facility and be diligent about your recovery - do everything that you get told to do, don't overextend and hope your insurance will cover as much as possible. Good luck.

    Did you do this in training?

    Sorry about your injuries. I don't think you can walk this one off or massage it away.

    You'd think I would have done it in training or something, but I didn't. I did it at a punk rock show actually. I was on the edge of the pit when one guy fell right between my legs, and another fell into the outside of my knee simultaneously. It dislocated pretty bad, with my kneecap on the side of my leg.

    During training, I'm very aware of threats to my joints, as I dislocated the same knee about 15 years ago in training. It wasn't nearly so severe, but ever since, I've been very cautious about foot placement, how my feet are planted, where momentum is coming from etc. Unfortunately, Dropkick Murphys show are just too damn chaotic, and I got nailed

    It really sucked because I had been training hard, dropping weight, and was getting ready to do some competitions this spring. It's looking like that'll be on hold for a bit.

    That sucks. You're probably out for close to a year, especially if you want to compete. Don't indulge in beer + ice cream therapy while you're coming back and be patient. I would say try to work out as much as possible prior to surgery, but you can't with injuries like those.

    **** happens. Unfortunately, this **** is elephant-sized.

    Right knee, high-school soccer injury back in 1999.

    Meniscus tear, tendons connected to the knee cap, acl torn and my knee cap shattered into two big pieces and a bunch of tiny ones. I actually went to the sidelines and passed around and went back into the game. As soon as I went to a full sprint I could feel the pieces of my kneecap floating up and down. I knew I was fucked at that point as I had previously torn my acl in that knee. Downtime was around 1 year until I could go full blast again. 6 months until I could really start to build my legs back up. The worst part about such a serious knee injury is the mental stuff. I was pretty much an asshole for a good year after that happened because my soccer career was put into the coffin and nailed shut.

    Good luck, and make sure your working with the best specialist and rehab people you can pay for, it makes every bit of difference.

    Dude, that is harsh. Best wishes for your prognosis and recovery. I know I'm perpetually paranoid about things like major knee injuries, so I totally empathize with you.

    That being said, I guess I'd better say it:

    Punk Rock Wins Again! :)

    Best Wishes for a speedy recovery,
