Knee injury

Whats up my friends? 😉 I just got back home from physiotherapy which is kind of like my most exciting part every day since it’s one of the only things that I can do. As you might have read already in the past few blog posts – I’m home right now trying to fix my knee problems asap!

To give a little bit of background: On 30th of March, while packing up my bag – going from squad position to normal, my patella (knee) popped out and ripped off the bend that keeps it in place. Nothing tragic. But really painful and recovery will take about 3-8 months including surgery. I have to build up my knee without operation for the next few more weeks and let the bend grow together. Once it’s “fine” it’s about time to get the surgery done after about 2 months. In the beginning I’ve been on crutches for a little more than 3 weeks and afterwards, I got a knee orthesis which basically allows me to walk halfway normal these days. Not gonna be able to do any kind of shooting for at least another two months.

The current status: life is great! I’m able to walk. Yey! – Means: I can finally go out again and simply enjoy life just a little more. 🙂 My next appointment is on Friday where my docs will hopefully tell when I will get my surgery.

Overall it’s, of course, a bit annoying as I have been booked for so many amazing jobs/trips to Aspen, LA / Coachella, San Francisco, Hawaii, Cuba, London, Monaco and a few more. Unfortunately, I had to cancel all of them. Health goes first and it’s 200% highest priority right now!

Anyhow, today I want to end this post with a little quote. I found this sentence somewhere a few years back and put it into my computers notes.

„Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.“ – Neale Donald Walsch

Never give up!
