    Just when I was getting my groove back, I get sidelined by injury, it didnt even happen on the mat either!!! I was scheduled to compete on the 24th of July and now nothing:icon_cry2 I'm not sure if I'm going to require surgery, but I'll know after the MRI.... All I know is that its SUPPOSED to be 1month of rehab, plus another 3mos of physical therapy.... :icon_sad:

    What do ya'll think I can do to not lose conditioning??? I hear running, burpees, etc are out of the question...

    I torn mine three times and had three surgeries. I never done no therapy. My last surgery I started rolling after two weeks. My guys thought I was crazy...I even had the bandages still over the holes. Fuck it two weeks was too long not rolling.

    If it hurts like fuck you will need surgery. I had waited a whole year before I had my first surgery....I hate hospitals.

    I'm sorry to hear that man. I'm just dealing with my first BJJ injury right now, and even though it's no way as serious as yours I'm pissed off.

    I don't have the luxury to wait a year, I wish I did, it hurts like a mutherfucker, but I'm alright.... I work as a federal agent, I work chasing badguys, I need to get it repaired ASAP in order to go back to work to pay my jiujitsu team dues and such, I'll be back, I just ned to stay in shape for when I get back.

    I hear you....one of my injuries occurred chasing a suspect. I sort of had a slight injury already but made it worse chasing that fuck. Good luck since you are off of work you will need to be cleared before you go back...your fucked as far as training goes. BP huh?

    I had a bucket handle tear in my meniscus. I had half of it removed, I walked the day of surgery, and started training a week later with a knee brace. Just played alot of closed guard (Which actually helped my game alot..I was always an open guard player and this forced me to work on my closed guard..now that I'm healed..My game has grown alot)

    Yeah, BP, I'm a former cop, I started jiujitsu because of it, I fell in love with it.... I didnt roll today, I feel empty inside right now... The injury happened at the range, which sucks because I'm an instructor... makes me look like a dumbass..:icon_neut
