    Injured Myself

      Unfortunately I was playing soccer in one of my RTO Subjects called Active Life. I was the goalie, I ended up saving the first goal but when I went to kick the ball I completely missed it and heard a loud cracking noise in my knee and had to sit out for the rest of the game. This was Friday of all days by the way.

      Anyhow, Saturday I went to see a Doctor and the doctor assumes I have a meniscal tear and to be certain as he wasn't 100% sure, he has made me a referral to get an MRI done, but the MRI is not till next Tuesday at 6:15pm.

      The knee is very painful, I am limping constantly, the doctor said to get crutches, but the crutches are expensive though, $50 deposit and $15 per week is outrageous in my opinion, I am not made out of money :)

      So, I am praying and hoping it's not too serious.

      Sounds like you are in a lot of pain Warren, I am so sorry to hear about your injury. I agree that kind of price is not something you want to pay for a few days. I sure hope it's not as bad as expected when you get your MRI done :)

      Me too. I am hoping it's not too serious, as I am limping on it. But it's painful, I always have to extend my leg, I can't bend my right leg at the moment for obvious reasons.

      I can't believe how expensive these crutches are, I start to wonder if everywhere is the same?

      I hope the MRI doesn't show too much trouble in the knee.

      One thing I can't understand, why is the MRI almost 2 Weeks later?

      ouch, that really sucks. You got to be careful and stretch out your limbs before playing.

      I hope you quickly recover.

      As promised I am about to give you an update regarding my soccer injury that occurred on Friday 6 December during a game of Soccer in my Active Life course.
      Got my results this afternoon from the MRI I did yesterday.

      It turns out that I have unfortunately injured my Patella, which the doctor recommends I stay off it as much as possible and use crutches, for at least a month.

      Also I have to see a Physio, so hope all goes well. Fingers crossed.
