Good stuff Gordon and terrible to see how often it happens in sport. I have had two ACL reconstructions done and unfortunately, the surgeons who did the operations weren’t as good as the ones the sports stars can afford to pay (I wish I won the lottery). I am now waiting for them to come up with a bionic knee/leg, so I - once again - can enjoy all the sports I used to play.
I also have a DVD that shows the inside of my knee. It was recorded when they did the latest of the three knee arthroscopies I’ve had. It’s amazing what they can do these days and the video shows how complicated the knee mechanics are.
My hope is that they will advance in this area within the next 5 years and that I get another chance of an ACL reconstruction before I’m 50. Here’s to hoping!
