Good luck and here's hoping that surgery is not in your future

That's nasty. Sorry to hear it. Do you need to be able to walk at work?

Best of luck to you.. Im not gonna share my story when they said it was "just my MCL". My advice is to find a good ortho, maybe two. Also have it elevated and on Ice as much as possible.

We have a great Ortho clinic here in Providence and I am making an appointment there; I never trust those ER docs to actually know what they are talking about.

Turns out I've got 6 weeks in a brace, then the physical therapy starts. Small ligament tear, lots of soft tissue damage, and a pretty severe bone bruise to go along with a type II sprain. Looks like I may not be brewing without assistance for a few months (how sad is it that that is my biggest concern here).

Anyway, thanks for all the well-wishes guys.

Count your blessings. A close friend of my wife fell down the stairs after celebrating the Monday night Packer win. He died of internal bleeding. He was 39 and it was his birthday.

Sorry to bum anyone out.

But if you read this then you're among the living and can still brew and drink.

Perfect excuse to build a sweet single tier - "But honey, I can't lift or carry anything, so I need these March pumps!

Having had my ACL completely sever at the tender age of 19, and the reconstructive surgery, I feel your pain, brother. Hope it goes smooth for you.
