Aloha ladies and gents! My name is Gino, I’m 25 years old, live in Hawaii, and recently injured my knee on September 2, 2012 in a basketball game. After a couple weeks i was able to see an orthopedic and get an MRI. I then found out my acl was completely torn, strained my mcl & lcl, with a little bone bruising. It’s been 39 days since my injury and I’ve been going to physical therapy twice a week the last 3 weeks. Swelling is almost completely gone at this point and my full range if motion is about 95% back. Full bending /flexion is back and I believe I’m only 3-4 degrees away from matching the hyper extension of my uninjured leg. I plan on getting surgery in December 2012 and I can’t wait to get that done and over with already so I can get back to ballin foo’s up on the black top! I’m starting this blog in hopes of helping those who are going through the same thing…. Since my injury i been killin it on google and youtube searching up on acl injuries, surgeries, recovery, etc. I’m like a knee guru ask me anything and i will enlighten you. Plus I hear rehab is a beach so this will give me something to do. Anyways I hope my blog helps some of you follow along with me on my “amazing” journey… Just know you are not alone and we will get through this together! Believe have faith and don’t be a sissy!
