Well, I finally got in to see the Ortho doctor today.

 

I go in next week for surgery. Initially he is planning on scoping the cartilage, and will check the ligaments while he is in there.

 

If all goes well, I will be riding by the end of the summer.

 

If I need ligaments repaired, I will be lucky to be riding by spring.

Yea, had my first ACL done about 20 years ago. Fortunately this time I did not fall nearly as far this time to cause it. The fall took longer to heal before than the ACL.

 

I have my surgery consult on Friday the 15th, and if my alergic reaction to my old brace is cleared up enough, I go under the knife on the 20th.

I am so friggen tired of the games!

Surgery consult and surgery is (was) scheduled.

Suddenly my workmans comp insurance provider, states that the accident is under investigation!

They put me in to a position where I was working alone, and it should have been a 2 man situation, and are claiming there was no witness to the accident! WTF?

as usual for a workmans comp incident, they always try to worm out of paying... bastards... i'm thinking your employer put you in a bad situation.... maybe if worksman comp don't come through maybe you have recourse to go after the employer?:baffled: we have had several people where i work go through the same thing and it really sucks!! good luck however you have to persue it.

I am not sure what the investigation will come through with. I was just relaxing thinking it will start getting better soon, and then they pop this poopy on me.

 

What a way to ruin a day.

I went to my surgery presoncult today to keep my side of the ball rolling so when WC gets off their butts, I will be ready. The ortho surgeron worked over my knee pretty good and gave me the news I was hoping not to hear.

He says the ACL needs replaced. That means I will not be out of therapy until after Christmas.

On the high side he called WC and gave them an ear full.

Trust me, I do not get pushed around easily.

Between my lawyer, my doctor and me, I am doing what is best for me.
