Zak's ACL Surgery
(st. louis park, minneapolis, USA)
I was playing soccer when I got injured, defender miss controlled the ball and I went for the ball, right when I decided to control the ball he came out of nowhere and ran my planted foot over.
Everything happened so quick and I heard cracked sound in my knee PAINFUL. I was so ignorant on knee injuries thinking that it would never happen to me.
I went to the E.R. and they took an x-ray, results came back quickly. He said it looks like you did not fracture any bone he also moved my knee around did some tests and sent me home after diagnosing a ligament sprain and gave me a splint to take home.
After a few weeks I felt that I was back to normal wearing a brace I went back to playing just a pick up game played the whole game but right at the very end I decided to do a hard kick (not the brightest idea) my left leg gave out on me and snapped again.
I decided to do an MRI, results came back ACL and slight MENISCUS tear. Devastated soccer is what I love and to be sidelined no way, I scheduled a surgery date 11/23/2011 which is Wednesday, which is today and I'm soo nervous.
But I put my faith in Allah I will be fine.
Wish me luck :)
