It has been a while since I have posted here. My apologies. I said I was going to start posting every week, but since that post, my season really took a U-Turn. Along with my bone bruise, they found a tear in my lateral meniscus. The doctor told me that if I could deal with the pain, I could ski for the rest of the season without any risk of injuring it further. I would then have to get a surgery to fix it in the spring.
I tried to ski on the torn meniscus for about a week, and realized that I would not be able to go on with the pain I was having. So, I decided to get the surgery as soon as possible. I got the surgery done this past Tuesday by Dr. Cooley in Park City, Utah. All they had to do was go in with a scope to see if there was any more damage than they thought, then smooth out the damaged meniscus. Fortunately, they couldn't find any further damage. The standard recovery for this surgery is 4-6 weeks. It was definitely my easiest surgery to date, as I walked out of the hospital just an hour after I woke up from anesthesia.
I hope this surgery will solve all of my pain issues to be back on snow in 4-6 weeks! I will post some pictures when I take the bandages off!
