    Thanks to @Budgiesmuggler for hooking me up with our local community group a few weeks ago. Posted earlier about needing an exercise bike for rehab and within minutes have an offer of one!

    Now to get it here LOL

    I still don’t understand their operation principles.
    We have had both ski patrol pick ups dump the person at the base.

    I hear ambulances coming all the time.

    One was a minor knee, but the other was screaming heap totally fkd knee. PB ran down to physio and borrowed a wheelchair to push his mate down the hill to seek treatment. The minor knee we pulled the car up and drive her to the medical centre.

    I bet that injured person called the taxi themselves.

    You’re in Drum? Highly recommend Sportslab for Physio. There is also an imaging place there. They do Aus swim team, NRL squads and various other high level sporting teams. Got me referred straight to a quality surgeon for my hip via recommendation from Swans team doctor :)

    Okay - GP knew what to write on the MRI form.

    Wanted to see the video. And generally chat about stuff (skiing heli stuff)!

    Im starving but will take a photo of bruising developments later.

    It's bruising all right! But I think the swelling went down a bit?

    As I predicted I am having more turns and less falls this season,
    so no visits to the physiotherapist to report thus far ;-P .

    Definitely sounded like textbook ACL, but the egg on your MCL says twinsies. I'm going for C, but hoping for none of the above and you've just got a bit of a sprain that will clear up in a few days (knowing full well that that is absolutely not the case....).

    That's what we like to see! More recovering, less injuring in this thread. Would be great if one day this thread and the cancer thread had zero activity.

    ACL with partial MCL and/or partial PCL. Maybe a hint of meniscus damage and a few small impact plateau fractures.

    Had to have an X-ray cause apparently ‘Stuart saw something floating”

    They also wouldn’t tell me anything!

    Bloke in the bed beside me just came back from his first snowboarding trip to NZ. Smashed both legs. Only it was partying on his last night and thought he could do a backflip at 4 in the morning onto concrete.

    Damn straight. The amount of times I’ve had to fix up the damage from radiographers making comments without knowing the clinical
    situation or misreading the films I couldn’t count. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes not. Either way, it’s a PITA.
    I understand it’s annoying having to wait, but it’s better that than being given incorrect information.

    I don't think XC skiing could cure cancer but it could not make it any worse.

    I’m going C and I hope it’s not. I hope it’s just A and no surgery involved.

    Looks hell sore :(

    I like using Fisio Crem and Comfrey Cream together on my sore bits.

    Ok, so while not wanting to interrupt Ozgirl's story, I feel I need to share!

    So after exercising the sh@t out of my leg, doing hours of physio and 'ready to ski' exercises, things went pear-shape. I pushed some heavy equipment at work, and my hamstrings & back went into spasm. I tried everything, but on the advice of my physio and others, I had to cancel my skiing trip. Perisher reimbursed my ski passes, which was totally unexpected & I am really grateful.
    So here goes a visit to a chiro (who fixed me partially). My hamstrings are over-reactive, firing before my glutes & quads. I got dry needling, and I finally can feel my VMO muscle!

    My GP made a care plan for me, which will subside my chiro sessions (she said whatever helps). She is sending me to have spinal CT done, and another visit to sports physician is pending, subject to results.
    I feel like a loser!!

    Sorry to hear you've had to ditch skiing this season, but probably a wise call. You don't want to make things worse with a fresh injury!

    Well, I managed to snowboard with the splint on without issue, so that's a minor victory!

    Last Tuesday, after 5 weeks of full time splint use, the hand therapist reduced splint time to high risk activities only (commuting/impact risk and active loading on the hand - gardening etc), so off for sleeping and when chilling at home or working on computer.

    I have also been given a couple of activities to do to rebuild strength, and hopefully my next appointment in 3 weeks will be my last.

    Ok Drumroll please....

    The answer is....















    C













    There is full thickness tear of the ACL with typical bony shift and bonyc ontusion in the lateral compartment. The PCL is intact. There is a small
    amount of bony contusion in the posterior medial tibial plateau.

    In the medial compartment, the medial meniscus is intact. There is no fullh thickness chondral defect on the articular surface. The MCL has oedematous
    appearance involving deep fibres where there is a high grade partial thickness tear. The superficial fibres remain largely continuous.
