Well... surgery round 2 scheduled for November 5th... they're doing a LOA with MAU... aka lysis of adhesion (cutting scar tissue) with manipulation under anesthesia (forcing my leg to bend).

Ugh. Still can't walk normally, last night I woke up screaming because I had a dream that I jumped off a ledge and when I landed, I folded my legs underneath me - I did that in my sleep in real life, and immediately woke up in severe pain... so yeah, hoping the surgery will jumpstart ACTUAL recovery.

Good luck with the surgery and the resulting improvement Katie. It's hard to imagine how hard this must be for you. I just went through a week and a half of severe back spasms that made it hard to do anything but yelp, but it was only a week and a half.

Thanks guys. I finally figured out to articulate what I want from people. Sympathy, no. Encouragement, humor, validation, and perspective, yes! It could always be worse.

Humor and perspective: I played golf with a co-worker a few times 35 years ago. When he flubbed a shot he'd sometimes say "Oh well, 100 years from now, nobody'll give a sh**."

Hope the second go round gets the knee moving again. When my dad had knee replacement they had some of the same issues with scarring ( he blew out his ACL and MCL in 1973 playing college football and had 7 knee surgeries before the replacement) but after they addressed the scarring he made the recovery they had hoped for the first time.

Always tough with set backs like this.

That's brutal. Leg in the forks? that's a new one on me but **** happens quick in a crash.

Best of luck with healing, at least you have all winter to get things right and ready for next season, right?

Thanks for the continued encouragement!!

I'm doing better after 2nd surgery, got a bit more range of motion and they removed a "knot" of scar tissue the size of a marble from in front of my ACL which was blocking extension. Now it's just a matter of pushing it as hard as I can. Still have a lot of pain and some stiffness with the ends of my range of motion but overall it's feeling better.

Now I need to move out of my parents' house so I can ride again, because I have used up my 3 strikes of dirtbike injuries. .. ha

I'm glad to hear about the progress! My parents happened to buy an inexpensive little car that they didn't need just after I had a couple crashes. It was pretty obvious who it was meant for. I know what you mean.

I was taken out on my VFR-750 back in 1993 by a drunken driver- broke my spine in 4 places, collapsed lung, right foot pointing 90 degrees from straight. They did 4 ops over a months time, i couldn't eat, dropped 35 lbs, was only 150 to begin with... the surgeon made me wait 3 years before any physical activity- because he knew i'd be right back on a bike.
Set your mind that you wanna be 100%, but give your body the time and rest it needs to heal. We put too much emphasis on time, but it doesn't matter in the end. I developed more patience than i could have imagined from this injury, and getting healed up is so much more important that the time it takes.
I was 25 in 1993, made a pretty incredible recovery, but those injuries still nag me. I ride when i can, but rest my back when it hurts, and then i ride again... don't be hard on yourself, on your body- it will recover, but it's the mental attitude that's the most important component. Tell yourself you will be 100%, but let your body tell you when it's ready for 100%, it has to last you another 50 yrs or so. I am 51 now, still riding, but if i didn't give my body the time it needed to heal, i don't think i would still be able to ride.
