    I stepped in a dang hole!

    and screwed up my knee! I may have some ACL damage. I'll know more when the trauma goes down enough to get good images. As it sits right now, though, I'm icing it and taking my Lortabs........I'm HONKED OFF though! We were going to take a little weekend tour this weekend....the weather is supposed to be spectacular.

    I feel your pain Tom...Stepped in a hole up to my knee when on a backpacking trip 7 years ago and still feel the effects from jamming my hip and back. Got my ACL replaced 3 years ago after destroying it while demonstrating a martial arts training machine at a convention.

    Holes Suck!
    Screwing up your ACL is Definitely no fun either.

    Good luck with the diagnosis and treatment.
    (Luckily one of the things they recommend for PT is cycling...when you're ready for it.)

    Here's a wish for a speedy recovery and STOP HURTING YOURSELF!!!
    You're using everyone else's share of the injuries....in all fairness you must stop hogging all the booboo time.

    I'm hoping it's a sprain as well. Pain is all on the outside of the knee though. On the good side, I can move the foot without sending twinges up to the knee and even exert pressure upward on the foot at the toes without sending me into orbit, so that's a good sign I just can't straighten the knee all the way and walking is painful.

    Doh!

    Here's hoping it does turn out to be just a sprain. I did all sorts of damage to my knee in a bad dislocation in 2001, so I feel your pain

    Hopefully it's just a spain. Your movement and pain kind of sounds like an MCL sprain, which seems to be a right of passage around my house.......

    Too bad about the weekend too. We're having some uncharacteriscally cool weather here too, as in lot's of hours less than 95, for the last couple of days.

    Get Well soon!

    Here's to a speedy recovery, and I hope that it's not too serious!

    A couple years back I was kneeling down tying a line to a fishing hook and when I stood back up to cast, my knee popped out and right back in. Hurt like the devil for a little bit but I could walk around OK, I just couldn't kneel or sit seiza for my karate class which was a pain.

    This isn't quite the same degree of issue you're having, but since we're all sharing....

    Sorry to hear, Tom. It seems knee issues abound in the clyde forum! I hope for your sake that it is justa sprain, though. There will be other weekend tours, but you only have 1 knee per leg, and they are a PITA to replace!!!

    Tom is generous that way. He offered to take my fractured rib for me, but I declined.

    Dang! I hope it all turns out well for you. I've been through all that ACL recovery with the knee, so give me a holler when you find out what is going on.

    Take it easy for a while Tom, and do whatever the doc says. You will be back in the saddle in no time.

    tom hopefully its not a tear since that would be brutal.i have a feeling it might be a major sprain since pain is from outside .it took me 17 months to heal and i put on 110 lbs during that time.so far ive lost 45 of tose pounds so far.if it is worse case scenero and you need surgery id opt for the graft one so you would get 100% range of motion back

    Update: Swelling is down considerable, and pain levels are down.

    atcfoody: We redid the anterior pull test-less motion and pain, significantly! I wonder if I had a dislocation to a small extent? Maybe the pull test yesterday reseated my knee was why it was so suddenly massively painful? Ortho Appt tomorrow, though and I'm already a lot more mobile.


    I did the RICE regimen (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation is what the acronym means, for those of you that haven't heard of it). I used Blue Ice packets and placed them on both sides of the knee to sort of act as splints.......worked like a charm! They stabilized AND chilled my knee, and they seem to have shut down the histamine reaction very nicely!

    That sucks dude, get better!

    I did the RICE regimen (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation is what the acronym means, for those of you that haven't heard of it).
    That's funny, we are doing a fitness contest at the gym and one of the questions I was asked yesterday was what R.I.C.E stands for... I got it right and I'm in the lead!

    Tom, that SUCKS big time. Fingers crossed that it is not ACL. Keep up the RICE and take it easy.

    Owy. The simplist little things like that cause injuries all the time. Lots of injuries on the clyde forum lately too. I hope that it continues to feel better, the doctor visit goes well, and that you are back to riding really soon.

    Take care.
