Correct, everyone I've heard about it say it will probably start to annoy in 2 years, then they will take those out in another surgery

Tomorrowmorning, after the Q, my mom will take of the bandage, and then I will stand on it again, for the first time in more than 2 months :)

And the moral of the story is: Don't try overhead kicks.

Hope you can do well tomorrow Joost :)

Everything going quite well, making progress every single day, my leg is getting less stiff every day. :)

Exactly a week ago I went back to the hospital for a check and he said I still have to walk with crutches for 3 weeks (2 weeks now) and I can only press 50% of my weight on that leg instead of 100%, so that was a bit disappointing for me as I thought my recovery went well enough to walk without crutches. On the 12th of May I have to go back to the hospital again, and that it's most likely for me to walk without crutches. This afternoon I am starting with physiotherapy :)

I went back to the hospital yesterday and the doctor said everything looks fine and the photos look good as well. So he says I have to discuss walking without crutches with my physiotherapist. Yesterday evening I had an appointment with him and asked him when I would be able to walk without crutches and he said after this weekend! So after this weekend my world will turn around quite a lot again, in a positive way! :)

PS. !yahoo: :C: :shhh: :rule# :C: !yahoo: !Great!

Played my first game in 9 months last sunday! Played for about 15 minutes and today played for about 60 minutes. Getting back on top feels great. Although I'm still not 100%
