Campfire Camaraderie

Just as the campfire back at any hunting camp is the setting for many lively discussions, shared experiences, and riveting storytelling; this blog is designed to allow me to share with you all of my latest hunts, articles, video or TV projects, and all the other exciting things happening with me, Trevon Stoltzfus and www.westernbiggamehunter.com.

Recovery



As an active outdoorsie (is that a real word??) guy and the winter here in Colorado being so harsh this year I have enjoyed keeping fit by playing indoor soccer. Tuesday night Feb 20th I "tweeked" my left knee playing in a game. Having had 2 ACL reconstructions on that very knee you could say I was "a bit" concerned. The knee was locked in a slightly bent position and I could neither bend or straighten it at all (very painful).


I was fortunate to get right in to see an orthapedic surgeon who promptly scheduled me for surgery (arthroscopic) on Thursday morning. Thank God everything went well and the surgery was a quick 22 minutes where the doc fixed the meniscus and told me my ACL was still OK !!


YEEEEHAAAWWW!! I can start getting ready for outdoor soccer which starts in the middle of March.


Well for now I have to lay around with my leg in the air for 3-4 days to keep the swelling down. My wife has been awesome and even built me a little "fort" with a gate and all where I can keep working and my leg elevated. Avery my 16month old daughter thinks it is pretty cool to try and "break" into my fort and bounce on my lap. I will keep you all posted on my progress, as I start some physical rehab next week.

Trev,

Jerod here. I had my knee scoped once too. Recovery time was real quick, around two weeks. But I was only 17 at the time, probably wouldn't be so quick anymore! Not sure of the extent of your surgery but I had 85% of the cartilage removed from my left knee (also hurt it playing some summer soccer).
