Hi Everyone, Skinnygurl here.
Three years ago today I had my PCL Surgery and began the long road of recovery. Instead of talking about me I would like to reintroduce Hamlet! He sent an update and I would like to share it with you. What an inspiration.
(GOOD JOB HAMLET!)
Hello Again Skinnygurl,
It's me Hamlet if you still remember. Would like to share with everybody about my latest development.
Attached is the picture of me with the medal and trophy we have won. I assisted our rugby club to win a state level league.
I played as a winger in most of the games. As you can see, I did taping on my right knee to assist my performance.
I can play without it but it is best not to take any risk. Otherwise, that is just a sign of insecure.
After such massive usage of the knee during the whole 2 months, I did worry about my knee so I scheduled a MRI scan with my specialist.
Thank God, the result was good. No sign of any damage and the previous surgery was a success. Of course I won't get 100% back the state of my original knee. But 90% is good enough to give me strength to continue playing rugby.
I know this is not much of experience to share, but my intention is to inspire everyone to not to lose hope. Faith is important for us to go on and achieve the goal of life. When I first decided to go for the surgery, I was in dilemma, some said better let it be without surgery, some say go on with the surgery.
I listen to my heart and tell myself I can go through this. So here I am, running again in the field with my new strength. This year 2011 is where I am officially back as an active rugby player. 2010 year end was more like a warming up and testing phase.
It is good to be back again after more than 2 years of rehabilitation and sitting as a spectator. Hope this will at least give everyone the motivation to get back on their "knee"
