Pop goes my ACL

Sung to pop goes the weasel...

I went skiing in a wet suit,
I didn't use the dry suit,
I froze my a$$ and didn't thnk twice,
Pop goes my ACL

I went to make a simple wake jump
it hurt like bi-yatch
My knee gave way and I rolled out,
Pop goes my ACL

Now my summer is ruined,
and I get to have surgery,
at least now I'll get some good drugs
Pop goes my ACL

Be careful out there all you weekend warrior desk jockeys!! We'll be using part of the hamstring (vs the patella tendon) so I can still kneeboard!

Owie, owie, owie. Just hurts reading this.

Good luck in your recovery. Seems you've got a good attitude toward it; "...so I can still kneeboard!"

Bongo

ACL's are a real problem. The obvious Dr stuff, make sure you are at a place that does lots of these, have a doctor that has done lots of these, and the doctor is older. Success has gotten much better on ACL's. Good luck!

talley-ho......good luck mate....i snapped one when i was 21...recovered and snapped it again at 27....the new surgery where they strip your hamstring was fantastic...My knee feels stronger than ever,,i barefoot,wakeboard etc...and still cut a mean shape on the dancefloor.....just do what the docs say and you'll be stronger than ever...and the copious amounts of morphine they give you straight after the op is fantastic............the leg exercising machine they put you on immediatley after you come round is a byatch......just pump that morf

Hey this is my first post. I tore my acl at 18, went on to play college football, never had a problem. i actually went snow skiing 3 months after my surgery, i couldn't run but I could still ski. make sure you do your rehab, do more if you can and you will be fine.

Be sure to do the rehab. As everyone else has posted, you should be back to true form before summer is out. Your ACL story reminds me of a warrior I met at the MC dealer. He asked what my water sport of choice was and I answered slalom. He proceeded to tell me that he used to slalom till he blew out a knee, then went to wakeboarding till he blew out his shoulder, so he is a sky skier.

Talleyho-Sucks about the ACL!!! Where are you located in Texas? I have some good friends who do rehab. I hear they specialize in ACL's. They took care of my arm and were top notch!
