Hi everyone, i just got out of the hospital, had a rare knee syndrome, took me a year to find the right doc who knew about it. i made a couple threads a year ago when i was desperatly looking for the answer. http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f12/knee-keeps-popping-out-1076671/ My fibula head would slip out of the socket when my knee was fully bent, making practice impossible, and grappling was my life. i was fine the rest of the time but i couldnt sit in guard with a good posture, play butterfly guard or armbar with one leg against the ribs. Couldn't shoot, or block kicks either. i think it came from the constant penetration steps i would drill like a mad man and land too hard on my knee instead of going forward. The surgeon dug a hole through my shinbone and connected a hamstring tendon to keep the fibula in place. Now i have to sit and hate my life for 9 more months without training, and a much lesser chance of achieving good things in grappling and mma. There's been only a few cases of this syndrome, has anyone encountered something similar?
