(Falkirk, Scotland )
I injured my leg last October during a rugby game. At first I didn't realize how serious the injury was. I thought I had simply sprained some of the ligaments in my knee so I continued training and tried to play again. After 3 minutes on the pitch my knee gave way and I had to be carried to the sidelines. Still, I didn't admit defeat and continued training. I finally gave in and went to the doctor after I had to stop suddenly one day and my knee just buckled. The pain was excruciating!!
