Knee injury

Nothing like working out & trying to get in shape for my wedding.... almost 3 months to the day of my wedding I injury my knee while working out...... I have to have surgery ASAP... I'm so upset..... I feel like working out for the past few months has been a waste... everything I worked up too is now gone.  I can't walk, I'm on crutches..

AUHHHHHHH

    It's not a waste at all unless you let it be.

    Take care of yourself, watch your diet, and ask yoour doc what exactly you CAN do to stay in shape.  i'm a veteran of knee injuries and my doc gave me all kinds of ideas that included everything from a crunches routine, to yoga, to lifting weights, to resistance band work.

    Get better soon!

    i'm an old pro when it comes to knee surgeries...i agree with PP...your doc will be able to give you ideas on staying in shape while you recover, and low impact ideas for after the stitches come out.

    good luck with everything.

    Don't get discouraged. It can be annoying. I have been working out for years and had a pretty major knee surgery last year that limited me. Just watch what you eat, do what you can. And just remember because you already have been working out, your body will bounce back much faster than if you hadn't, so it is definitely not for nothing.
