oh well, as you know I had a bad knee. had a simple operation on it monday to remove some cartiledge and flush any loose bits out of it, and to have a general inspecion of it all. and guess what?

My Medial Cruciate Ligament it rupured badly.
My Anterior Cruciate Ligament is ruptured.
My Posterior Cruciate Ligament is ruptured.
My Meniscii are both wrecked.

The doctor tidied up the meniscii and flushed all the loose bits out, but he said he couldn't believe i've been walking about like it for ages. Gotta have another operation asap to have all my ligament repaird, which is a dodge operation to have one done, but three? there's only one surgeon in Norfolk who can do it. so gotta wait ages. and guess what? all physical sports are out! for ages. he reckons kickboxing is a no no. god only knows what a knee bar would do to me?!?!

I'm sick. absolutely sick. can't believe how bad this has affected me. all i wanted to do this year was train. might aswell take up bloody knitting or cross stich.

though you guys should know, coz I gonna come off the forum i think coz it just piss me off even more.

even a bloody "Leg It" is a no-no now!

Bloody hell mate! never saw it going that bad! and really don't know what to say!

Sometimes (okay, very often) i get a bit lazy, and always think about, what if i couldn't train again, or HAD to take a rest for 6 months or so, it'd kill me and want me to train more!!!

Let's just hope the next op goes well and see what everyone says, including proper qualified physiotherapists (crazy spelling I'm sure!), not just doctors who patch you up!

But don't dissapear man, just cos' you're out for a bit dunt mean you're out for good does it? So keep yourself here! Don't give-up just yet!

P.S. Your pic now suits! :-|

Fook me can't believe it Nathan , i feel for you dont know what id do without training..

Any idea how long youll be out for? Cant believe youve been walking round on it....

Is all training out? What about upper body weights, boring but any chance you can do that?

I wouldnt just bump the forum theres nothing wrong with being a keyboard ninja for a few months...... and Robsco does promise to open a perv section on the site at some point :-p

And I thought I had it bad because every time I think my whiplash has gone away, it comes back worse whenever I train/play footy/play golf/sleep funny/etc. I was moaning about training last night and how I couldn't roll properly, I was getting tapped all the time etc (no change there), but I'll shut my mouth in future.

That's really unlucky mate, but there's still stuff you can do. Have you thought about joining Bupa or something and queue jumping for the ops? Plus you can take up something else- darts, snooker, golf, wheelchair basketball, stamp collecting etc. You might even find another hobby or sport you really like.

Failing that, there's always masturbation.

I know karate is a no no subject but i met a guy who was i think 2nd dan and he got himself into a car 1 night and had a very very serious accident.The story goes he coudln't walk again and was in really bad shape.Anyway that thing you call determination kicked in and postive thinking and hey he got himself back training against all odds.He started down the dojo on cruches and thats no lie.Also he gain his 3rd dan which was a big acheivement for him and yes there were blackbelts with tears in there eyes and he gave inspiration to all.GOOD LUCK WITH ALL FUTURE OPS and never say NO.:-D

Nathan, bad luck mate. Having had a recurrent back problem I know it can be a bugger having to stop training. One time my doc wouldn't even let me do non-combat tai chi!

Seriously tho', I once read a book called "Martial Arts for the Disabled" which looked at the possibilities of training when you were, for instance, in a wheelchair etc. Maybe the guys are right to suggest trying a less leg based art for a while. Maybe see if there is a kali club, tai chi or wing chun which specialises in close up hand techniques etc which can be practised without too much strain on the leg.

Whatever you do, don't give up the training cos you can drop into a hell of a depression if something so important goes out of your life. Stay with us and let us know how things are going. I hope I'm right in saying we're all behind you.

Yeah, can still do upper body weights, and was training legs at gym before the op, so between now and when I have the op on the ligaments i'm gonna build my legs up loads, coz it helps to stabilise the knee once i've had the operation. I'll be back, just won't be for a while, depending on how much I have to wait for the next op. I cheered up a bit, was just a blow, because I thought after this operation I'd be sorted after a couple of weeks, but it turns out it's worse. However, my claim goes to court soon, so hopefully I can get some money outta the council. It should be a fair whack too as it's permanent damage, so If I do get a lump, I can afford a really good physiotherapist (correct spelling - Robsco :-p) and get myself sorted. and as bass says, there's always masterbation!

Just for the record if claim is already with solicitors nathan would more than likely signed cfa(conditional fee agreement),which would mean he's locked in with his laywer.I meant just free advice just to help:-p BUT I WOULDN'T MIND SOME COMMISION SL:-)).
