OK...well some of you will know that I've had a bad 12 months when it comes to my health. First, I had impacted and ulcerated wisdom teeth, which had to come out, then I got chronic rhinosinutis and needed to have my sinus's drained surgically, and then the cherry on the cake was when I stacked it at netball and ruptured the ACL ligament in my left knee and tore the three remaining ligaments that connected my femur to my tibia....OUCH!
So, there hasn't been much in the way of RIDING going on within the last six months or so. Hah.
But...and here's where the excitement starts....I just saw my knee surgeon for my three-month post-op appointment on friday, and I was given OFFICIAL permission to ride horses again!!!!!!!!!
I have missed riding so much it actually makes me cry just thinking about all the good times I have missed in the last few months. I am looking forward to this so much. I NEED this, lol.
I have my first lesson back at the riding school tomorrow afternoon. I'm actually kinda nervous, about how my knee's going to hold up, if my riding/position's been affected by the injury etc.
I will attempt to take some photos but have no one to give the camera to! Haha but will keep you guys posted on how I go!!!
P.S. JustDressageIt and My2Geldings, I know you guys have gone through some major injuries and operations in the past, just wanted your opinions on how this affected you and possible advice on how you guys 'got back in the saddle' pardon the pun.
Wish me luck!!!!!
