Update – 近況 (2)

This is the continuation of my previous post – What I’ve been up to.

It was the first time ever that I’ve done MRI. The machine looks very expensive and it was continuously making some noises. With the MRI film, I went to see the orthopedist again the next day.

His prediction was right. It became apparent that my ACL was torn as well as my meniscus was ruptured. He told me that he was sorry but I needed to get a surgery to fix this problem; and he was right. I did some research on torn ACL and found that I could choose not to have a surgery but that means I wouldn’t be able to play any sports for the rest of my life.

On careful thought, I had been having this knee problem quite a while. I fell while I was playing Frisbee with kids in August last year and I heard a pop. Since then, I felt like my knee became extremely unstable that I dislocated it for several times. I didn’t really dislocate it but I felt like it. I hoped to be able to run and jog, to do some exercise and to do some sports again so I decided to undergo a surgery.

The PCMO who saw me the other day told me that he would consult with Washington DC about surgery. I knew it was going to take a long time to communicate with DC and to decide the details of my surgery.
