It was hard enough before now....
I've always had leg problems when im riding. I was born with Osgood-Schlatters in both knees, and both legs are bowed, so it always hurt to have my legs in the stirrups, or to get up out of the saddle, or dismount etc.
About 2 weeks ago we were doing an obstacle course for PT and I was kind of pushed off one of the walls. When I landed my legs were folded up underneath me. I ended up maybe tearing 2 ligaments in my right knee and sustaining hairline fractures in my left leg. So now im probably looking at surgery.
Im fine with that because im in HI and I can't ride here anyways. My beef is that its going to be soooo much more painful now to ride when it was already bad before. I was given a one month profile and physical therapy to try and avoid surgery but still.
It is kinda funny that I can go 18 years without a single serious injury but my first two years enlisted and im like the most accident prone person in the army. Bah oh well.....end of rant haha
