Send Me To The Knackers Yard.

Two years ago I had a motorcycle crash where I broke my left hip and damaged my left knee.My hip rapaired itself nicely but the knee is still a problem. In March I underwent a knee Op. My ACL had considerable scarring around it and this was removed. My knee had damage to the back of the Knee cap and this was also removed. I now find myself with a very weak left leg. If I try to do any strengthening exercises it just gets painful and swells. I am desperate to get back to running as I used to,is there anything I can do to help this along ?


  • Dave, what sort of specialist input do you have at the moment? I think your situation is too big for us to be able to offer much advice online safely. You need the involvement of someone who regularly puts their hands on the damaged parts and knows what they're doing.

    I don't think your ambition to return to running is unrealistic, though. Do keep posting your progress!

    There may be some people around the forums who have recovered from injuries as severe as yours and have some useful pointers for you.

    Cheers, V-rap.
