Bummer! Well, take it easy and take solice in the fact that the season was just about done anyway. Not that that helps much, but it's something.

sorry to hear that Phil,

My older boy tore his ACL in a FIS Dh his 1st J2 year.

they but him in rehab before the surgery to get a smuch range of motion as possible before surgery.

We opted to use hamstring for the repair. it was about a nine month recovery and 2 years later he won the training run at the same DH on the same course. He did struggle subconciously when racing for about 1 1/2 seasons.

It has been 4 years and he is skiing better and stronger then ever. I understand that he is a lot younger, but with great rehab and following Dr's orders they have come light years in repairing these things.

tell her good luck and have a speedy successful recovery!

Best of luck to your wife Phil. Next week will be my 1-year anniversary for blowing the ACL in my left knee. I'm now back on skis and fine. No bumps yet, however. Key is rehab and more rehab. Follow the surgeon's advice to the letter and find a top flight PT Team and all will go OK. I'm now stronger on the rebuilt knee then the good knee.

She is in pretty good spirits and is amazed at the support from a forum that doesn't even know her, she says "Thank you".

Now I get to shop for braces www.braces(backwards)Rus.com Thumb Up

Best of luck to Lola.

My young friend at Burke Mt Academy had a Patella graft (from her other knee) to repair her ACL 5 weeks ago. The doctor told her she could ski this week as long as the snow was good and she stayed on beginner terrain. I realize a 18y/o is in better shape, but if Lola has good Physical Theorpy she can come back sooner. She has all Summer and Fall to be ready for next season. Help her be positive.

That should be easy for you.

This is so scary/depressing. There has to be some consequences for these maniacs. Ski areas should keep lawyers on staff to help customers sue the perpetrators. They'd easy make their money back.

Hope all goes well with her surgery and physical therapy. They can do so much more today than they could back when my husband tore his knee up!
Hopefully she is a good patient and you are a good nurse!:

Phil, sorry to hear this, hope all goes well with the surgery.

Hadn't seen it earlier as I was at SR for the Masters Nats. all last week and hadn't been on-line much. Explains why you weren't skiing on the Friday!

Here's to a speedy recovery
