    Good luck, hopefully it isn't anything that a shot of cortizone won't fix.

    Good luck - worst case you'll be like me with my knee problems a few years ago that ended up in surgery, but it was all for the best and it's back at 100% now

    you should be okay though! :hs:

    good luck... i had swelling around my knee cap for 2 months now... seeing the doc again tomorrow... can't figure out what's wrong so hopefully he can tell me specifically rather then just tell me to take anti-inflammatory and give it a rest

    General instability of the knee was what they pointed out to her... PCL is the most obscure ligament in the knee to be torn- very minimal chance of it.... which is why it is only natural... that she did it... roller derbying...lol BTW - We were told that PCL injuries are typically due to a direct impact on the knee (cap) itself. And, in case you're wondering - yes they one, and yes she finished the bout :eek:

    after the swelling went down just a general looseness of the knee..my boss (she's a Physical Therapist) did a couple tests to confirm. It wasn't major, I'm pretty much back but sometimes it feels a little unsteady.

    Thanks for the support, guys. I'm trying not to run as much as usual. Been going maybe three days a week or else I'll get major anxiety.

    I hope I won't need surgery, but my sister had surgery once and needs it again so I'm worried.

    And roller derby is like the new hotness...everyone I know is getting into that. :rofl:

    Just hang a hot lil thong around your swolen knee and snap a pic. Will be good for laughs. I suppose the guys with knee fetishes can beat off to it.:naughty:
