So I Begin My Road To Recovery This Saturday

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Yes, Surgery to repair my complete tear in my right quad this Saturday.  Injury happended 6 days ago while playing bball.  Big snap and pop, fell to the ground, and in complete agony.  Everyone's story is different, but we all want the same result, 100% quick recovery.  Is there any advice, anything at all, that you can recommend to make my journey towards surgery and then to recovery, more enjoyable?   I love to lift and want to get back to the gym asap.  I know it wil be all upper body training, but when can I expect to get to the gym again?  And, when can I expect to get back to work?  I am a teacher and will have to of course drive to work.   Peace.

See a sports doctor

 

Set up appointments with a good sports physiotherapist

 

avoid exercises that put any stress on your knees - talk to your physio
