As I mentioned in my blog entry of August 21st (read it), I tore the meniscus in my left leg back on July 27th. Or so I thought... It turns out my injury was misdiagnosed!
According to the doctor's report based on an MRI of my left knee, I fractured "the anterior aspect of the medial tibial plateau". How they missed this fracture on the x-ray I took that night I'll never know. On top of that, I also tore my ACL. This may explain the immense pain and prayers for a quick death.
I've been avoiding strenuous use of my left leg for six weeks now and I've been ordered to continue doing so for at least another six weeks. There goes my annual ski trip to Aspen.
