The Knee Part III

I tried to get to you all yesterday but total I spent most of the day in the car and at the gym and at the ball field. It was kind of a crazy day.

My knee report was not good. Not good at all. The Dr. said that my ACL allograph didn't take and that I was pretty much functioning with no ACL. It is still in my knee and attached but it is not serving in function. I was given a few options, first we will be trying a ACL brace for stability. I have to go back and see Dr. Ortho after a month with the brace. If that doesn't work the only other options are surgery. Orthoscopic surgery is the first option but there are all these factors that go into it....it could end up being 2 surgeries and 9 months of recovery. Needless to say that didn't make me happy but now the hope is that the brace will work fine until I can find 9 months to do nothing but sit on my butt and gain back all the weight I have lost.

I told you I would update you so there you go. It could have been worse!

You can do it!!! Do NOT give up on yourself! When and IF you have to have the surgery just eat right. You aren't going to gain all the weight back by just sitting on your butt all day. But, if you sit on your butt all day and eat all the wrong foods then YES you will gain the weight back. I'm struggling with my weight too, so I know what you are going through. It's tough, because I get shin splints all the time that keeps me from excersing. Just remember you can do it!!
