Unhappy Disaster

Hello all,

Five days before leaving on my very first bear hunt, I was doing so small jobs around the house measuring a window for my garage, the ladder went out from under me 16FEET up. Down I went blew my knee up. Wait here from my orthopic surgern.

For every body out there, good luck this year my seasons over.

Well as bad as it seems now you will look back and realize how lucky you are. It could have been alot worse! I hope you have a quick recovery.

cortizone shot, pain killers, muscle relaxers, and a good knee brace.

failing that, do what they say. have had 7 knee surgeries for various dumb moves. they do heal with time. don't give up on the entire season yet, you'd be surprised what they can do now. good luck.
