Thanks for the advice on pt I did all my exercises at home twice a day on top of my regular pt and my knee has healed remarkably. So for someone who had 4 tears in there monsicus, ruptured kneecap, and 4 torn ligament im doing pretty well.
If all the surgeries are complete you should be back riding in 6-9 months with proper PT.... See it all the time.

Yea luckily I have established a pretty high tolerance for pain from years of playing rugby and riding dirtbikes.

exactly, I was cleared by my doctor 5 1/2 months post surgery. I did bust my butt in PT and I was 29 when I had my surgery in relative good shape(play alot of basketball and lift) so not a young buck by any means. I did use my Don Joy brace for my snowboard trip right after being cleared but I had no issues and havent had any the past 2 years except for the occasional stiffness which probably means I'm just getting old as well, lol.

Good Luck with your recovery.

God damn our medical costs are so out of whack in the US. The hospital billed $50k for each of my relatively minor ankle surgeries but accepted $25k each from my insurance. For the same the of surgery medicare would reimburse less than $10k and the hospitals accept it. I really think they just pull a number put of their ass and hope some dumb schmuck pays the whole thing. I can't comprehend what it must be like to need something major done without insurance.

Insurance is a pretty whacked out system luckily the first 40 was covered under auto, the bad part is after the first 40 im now on my parents geha insurance and will probably wind up with 8 to 10 thousand in deductibles. But you cant put a price on living or being able to walk again so in the big picture 8 to 10 isnt horrible.

Got a good to go on riding a couple times this doc wants me to take it slow, especially after I saw time last with a nice gouge in my knee from dirtbike vs tree (fuck these things). But anyway I should be all good to go just gotta loose some weight I gained. Doc said if I can climb 30 feet up in a tree stand then I can ride so stoked to shred again

That looks nasty man! But fortunate that you're still with us! I screwed up my ACL when I was away for the weekend with my brothers on skis (stupid things) in a park. Couldn't straighten it for about 5/6 months and it still clicks when I move it, and ocassionally aches.

Thankfully, because I decided it was a good idea to carry on skiing on it, there was absolutely no pain if I put weight on it whilst my knee was bent in the position that I was skiing in, which meant that when I went boarding 2 months after the incident, it didn't hurt unless I fell.

Hope it goes well for you bro.

I feel yam. I am taking this season off after a free soloing fall on march 11th. I could prolly go boarding but I would be in some pain so to me it is better to take the year off rehab and get out stronger next year instead of possibly re injuring my knee because I couldn't wait. But I have seriously thought about quitting until the cold weather started coming around and I got the itch. I was doing serious rehab for several months and my leg is a lot better but it is not perfect so I have to keep trying to do rehab on my own since I am no longer going to the physical therapist.

Am I right that this is without ropes? Not trying to be callous here, but after wasting an entire season with surgery and rehab, will you still continue to climb without ropes? Really just curious here.
