ACL

I am back from a nice drive to beautiful Squamish, BC which is a half hour drive North towards Whistler from Vancouver.  Today was my 3 week post-operation visit to see Dr. McConkey (great guy and incredible surgeon!).  Dr. McConkey has done thousands of knee operations in the past 30 years! He is the Canadian […]

Here is my first You Be Healthy video!  It is a short clip of me on the windtrainer (my mountain bike on spinners) at day 12 after knee surgery. My rehab is going at record speed according to my surgeon! This is the low down on what I am doing: Using my regular supplements, plus […]

As you know, my  knee surgery healing process is going incredibly well!   I did a pre-hab which helped speed up my recovery process.  Part of my pre-hab was taking homeopathic Arnica Montana.  It speeds up the recovery period and minimizes swelling after surgery. I always have a supply of Arnica on hand as it comes […]

The results are in…and it is good news – I’m already weeks ahead in my recovery! I had my first physio visit today at day 8 post surgery.  The bandages came off and I have minimal swelling and can fully extend my leg and can bend past 90 degrees.  I am miles ahead of my […]

My ACL Knee Surgery!

by You Be Healthy

I had ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament in the knee) surgery on Monday and everything went A-OK!   Neither my surgeon nor myself were sure if it was indeed a complete tear, despite the MRI results which indicated a full tear.  My leg was pretty stable and I felt awesome!  I did a technical, steep trail run […]
