    i have two sprained MCL ligaments, one in each leg. Sports injury on a treadmill, ran on a ridiculous high incline. LAXITY bad in both knees. I'm told this could take up to a year+, hopefully not. I'm miserable!

    What ligament did you injure? For me, showering is the biggest challenge too.

      hey peter, so SORRY to hear! If you injured your menicus, it will hear much faster then a ligament. I can walk, but it sure ain't fun!! I'm very active and this injury really knows how to keep your spirits down. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

      100%? I have not been there which seems to be almost a year! I hope, pray, wish, drink wine, meditate, chant, PT, CBD, you name it, I do it all!!

      I'm a Realtor, so most times i can work from my computer, but I love to get out, inspect, stairs, preview, etc. It's an awful feeling being "stuck".

      Hope you're doing better, Jamie
