Thank you for the add. I was injured on 9/10/2020 at a trampoline park. Here is my diagnosis:
- Torn anterior cruciate ligament
- Torn posterior horn of medial meniscus
- Injury to Hoffa’s fat pad
- Large joint effusion
- Mild lateral subluxation of the patella.
- Sprain of the medial collateral ligament
I am struggling mentally. I have lost a lot of weight recently (160+ pounds), and was really enjoying doing things I couldn’t do previously. I became super active hiking, jogging, kayaking, surfing, soccer and basketball. This injury has me completely emotionally down on myself. I’m terrified I will gain weight back. I’m currently in a complete immobilizer and talk to ortho tomorrow about surgery. I also recently was in the process of starting horse back riding again (I was a competive horse back rider in highschool/college) and JUST got my new riding boots altered literally a few days ago so I could start riding ASAP. How do I overcome this mental bs?
