You have 4 ligaments in the knee.  I ruptured (Read 100% torn from bone) 3 of them ; Medial Collateral,  Posterior Collateral,  and Anterior Cruciate.  Tore the Lateral Cruciate about 60%,  dislocated the knee,  and rotated the lower leg approx 110 degrees.  In short,  I was laying on my back,  looking over to my right and saw the top of my own foot.  Most non-triumphant!  So........3 pins,  4 screws,  tendon donations from both of my legs,  some artificial material,  3 operations,  and 1 year of PT and I am good to go.  I actually recovered much better than the doctors thought I would.  I lost about 35 degrees of flexion (bending) but can straghten it out completely which means no limp! 

Annnnnnnd,  after learning to run again and regain confidence in the leg and get strong enough mentally,  I returned to playing football at the tender age of 29.  Yes.......very stupid.  Played 3 more years to prove I could.  Got to hoist 3 league Championship trophies,  and a Mid-States Championship trophy too.




PS:  When I hurt the knee.................I STILL DIDN'T FUMBLE!!!!!  8)




Wow, I tore my ACL last spring and I am just about to get back to playing soccer...Your injury makes an ACL tear seam like child's play.

I got my B.S. in Criminology and Abnormal Psychology from NIU in '95.  Since then I've flown planes through Lewis University (one semester).  I have been working in the Criminology field for over the past 11 years.  I talk to Drug addicts, thiefs, alcoholics. gang members, sex offenders and murderers and pick their brains to figure out what makes them tick.


I got my B.S. in abnormal stories while bellied up to the bar at the nearest NCO Club. And After 23 years I got M.S. with the not-so-quite-true war stories. Currently working on PHD as in Piled Higher and Deeper.


P.S. Thanks for the nod.

Fish? What are "Fish"?

I played baseball in Highschool, and have been umpiring baseball since I was 14. From the squatting behind the plate umpiring caused the muscles in the back of my leg to me much stronger then the ones in the front. One day while playing wiffle ball in gym class i dislocated my left kneecap. i have done it a few times since then. it doesnt tickle. i still dont have complete confidence in my left knee enough to play sports i love.

Knees are designed to bend one way and ONE WAY ONLY!
