hey guys. about a month ago, i went for a step down jump
at my local mountain and i landed on the knuckle. what happened
was i didnt get enough speed to completely clear it. my
front right half(i am goofy), cleared but the left half of
me did not, making me land all my weight upon my left leg.
right when i landed it felt like my knee exploded and i
slid off to the side where i wouldnt get smashed. it took
me about 15 minutes on the ground to get back up and just
ride down to the base.
anyway, the first two days after the slam i was on crutches
and then after that i was good enough to walk. it was getting
better everyday but then the progress sort of plateaued and
it hasnt been 100% since. ive been looking at knee diagrams
and injuries and im thinking it has something to do with my
fibula. on my left leg, it is the outside bone, right down
below where my knee pivots. currently, i am good enough to
walk, run and jump, as it's been letting me play basketball
but i can only half ass it.
so in short i landed all my weight on my left knee. it has
stopped getting better.
i can walk, half ass run, and half ass jump. and sometimes
if i put my leg in different positions the pain can climb
all the way up my femur.
i am seeing a doctor to get an x ray soon, but has anyone
experienced anything similar?
