Does anyone who has suffered the above live in the UK ?
I have just returned to England having pulled all 3 hamstrings from the bone in a waterski accident .
I can't believe this has happened to me and am normally an optimist but feel really concerned over what this means. I saw an Orthapaedic consultant who didn't give me a lot of hope as he said it was very rare and not a lot of people can help with surgery. I had a scan today and have to go back for the prognosis on Tuesday. Following the scan I was due to go for physio but told not to by radiologist due to severity of injury ie all hamstrings are off the pelvis. They could nt give more detail but said the consultant would look at the scan and check on the gap. I don't know how best to support my injury in the interim.
I'm on crutches and resting at home with pain relief. Any suggestions what will help at this stage or recommendations of surgeons /sports medicine doctors /consultants..? I think I need a specialist in this injury. Feeling desperate and very worried how long this will take to recover if ever?
I am a very busy mum of 3 children and work full time and can't drive or walk right now
Any hope of realistic advice you can give?
Would love to hear from anyone that could help From tracey
