“I am a ski patroller in the East and was skiing moguls and made a cut turn and heard the biggest POP you could imagine. My ACL was torn and along with it came a piece of my tibia which is displaced, and a torn meniscus. I have surgery next week and depending on how big the bone piece is the surgeon will either fix my meniscus, take out the bone fragment, clean it up, rehab me and then do the ACL reconstruction as a separate surgery… ORR if the bone fragment is too big to be removed he will pin it and suture it back, and then repair my ACL, meniscus and clean it all up in one surgery. Unfortunately, the second option will likely leave me with a very difficult recovery of motion.
So, I too am really nervous about the surgery and getting back to skiing. I never really thought I would have an injury like this, especially as a patroller. If this is still active, I would appreciate if anyone has had the displaced tibial bone piece I would appreciate information on the recovery for this!”
