I’m a Grade V para rider due to L5/S1 spinal damage which results in challenges with the left side of my body (can’t ride a manual vehicle anymore, let go of reins with my left hand etc).
In December 2021 I managed to damage my right knee, torn meniscus and displaced fracture. Due to that, my left Achilles became inflamed. Honestly, it never rains but it pours.
Recovery has been slow as the right knee likes cycling as rehab, while the left Achilles likes walking.
Yesterday I was braiding and when I stepped off my step stool my right leg completely forgot how to leg and I fell over. Of course, I fell to the right, landing on my twisted right knee. FFS.
While this injury isn’t as bad pain-wise as the first injury, it just confirms that I can’t trust my right knee, and it will be forever weaker.
I will go to my doctor (I didn’t think much of the guy in A&E) but hoping to hear some feel-good happy stories about knee rehabilitation, please.
