Too man leg shots! aka Injured...


So it turns out that getting "legged" more times than I can remember last week, and dropping down without knee pads has caused a ligament sprain in my knee. Needless to say I woke up yesterday and my knee looked like a grapefruit had been lodged under my knee cap! emoticon

I'll be taking it easy this week (thursday) and possibly will be there for morale support on Saturday... and to train people coming in so you guys don't have to wait so long in between waves of newbies.

You're a good man, Smitty! And sorry to hear about the knee. Definitely don't play on an injury. Keep ice on the swelling, and try to work it about as much as it will allow you.

If you still have an issue into next week, get some medical attention.


Also, wear some bloody kneepads. Your best bet is volleyball style. They're made for chicks who slam their knees down on hardwood gym floors, so you know they're rugged. Usually, those are cheaper than what you'll find for other sports too. I got my set from Sports Authority for about 8 dollars, I think.

I have already procured the described knee pads. I’ve been icing it and taking ibuprofen, stretching it as it allows. It feels ok, still feels tight, so I’ll take this week off from battling and then back to normal next week! Blamo! Thank you for the advice.

That sucks to hear. Hope it heals up quick.

It is strange that we have to keep buying padding to be safe. I swear, eventually we're going to be walking around in bubble wrap.

Thank you all for the well wishes. Unfortunately it is looking like a Torn Meniscusemoticon I can't even stand on it anymore... so no practice tomorrow for me. Do me proud and I hope to be out there again soon.

UPDATE:
Went to the Doctor on Monday, without doing an MRI they can’t say for certain what is wrong with my knee. But I am on some meds and resting up. He said no strenuous activity this weekemoticon And that if it isn’t better by next Monday then I’ll get an MRI (and have to pay out of pocket) BARF! Needless to say looks like I am out again this weekemoticon

MRIs are not cheap. They're amazing for getting information, but they're bloody expensive.

The good news is that generally knees are fairly well fixable/replaceable. So, this certainly isn't a permanent issue. It's just all a matter of how much you're willing to spend and how soon. emoticon


Hopefully (and as I suspect), it's not a big deal. Do as they say and keep the pain meds on. Should work itself out.

The doc guessed around $500 to MRI my right knee, which isn't horrible if it has to happen but I'd rather take it easy for a week and save the $500 if it is just a prained ligamanet or something along those lines. No pain meds here, just anti inflamatory. I [sign in to see URL] do I say it... loopy on pain meds. I don't like to be on them.

They are probably going to have to take the leg and get you a robot leg. I would suggest the one with the rockets installed.
