Hi Lana from Atlanta - So you were wondering about my knee

Posted by @jonsan, Jul 17, 2011

Hi Lana from Atlanta – So you were wondering about my knee issues ?!?!.. Well .. Once upon a football field many moons ago – A torn medial-meniscus – and one orthopedic surgeon who insinuated that the NFL may not be in the cards for my future, suggested I hang up my cleats after surgery number #1 – Which I did !! 15 years later it was suggested that I also hang up my snow skis, and simply sit by the fire with a nice martini and my designer after-ski boots and sweater !! .. Which i did, well – sort of – for about 5 years – And then – Back to the slopes and up to the BLACKS – and down came Jon again.. So no more ski adventures !! Oh yeah – Basketball caused the 2nd surgery.. So I guess you could say I was old enough to know better – But still too young to care – still am more or less – Anyway there ya go .. So I suppose you could conclude… That Yes !! The Knee was a result of “Living Life”, maybe a little on the edge, and over the edge at times – And those resulting special little accidents that often ensue !! Thanks for asking ….. So then – Howzzz bout your ACL .. Better now it sounds ..!?!? @lanacavassa

So do you limit your activities now? I’m so happy that I’m almost 98% back to normal. It’s been about 4 1/2 months since I injured it. I played tennis from a very young age (playing tournaments at age 7) and love snow & water skiing. I went to a chinese Dr. that made a paste from mustard and applied that to my knee about 3 days in the very beginning of the injury (I jumped off the back of a pick up truck and landed wrong while trying to avoid something on the ground) But I really think the high doses of Omega 3 and turmeric have helped me . Also, I went to a personal trainer for exercises to strengthen the surrounding muscles. Now I wakesurf at least 4 times a week!! All the best in your health quest! Lana
