Coming Back From An Injury

Recovering after surgery is a difficult experience. Most people think that the pain is the hardest part to manage after a major injury during recovery, but by far the most difficult part of recovery is the mental aspect and the fear of re-injury. Blowing out my left and right knee skiing over the past 3 years has had major effect on my life. Not only was the injury somewhat painful, but immobilizing. Generally after reconstructive surgery crutches are required for only two weeks. But due to the fact I tore my miniscus as well I had to be on crutches for 6 weeks. Crutches in the winter in the snow are no fun. I am now finally cleared to go back to full activity but the thought of going through the ordeal for the 3rd time makes me thing. Is having fun skiing and participating in various other activities worth it? Yes.
