Seems like the 2nd half of this year is not the best one for me. After being relatively injury free during my Bjj/mma career, I have suffered 2 rather serious ones now. First in Iceland I injured my left knee, a partial MCL tear, which healed up pretty good on its own. And now, secondly, I injured my left ankle while giving a seminar in Sweden on 14th October.
I was on the receiving end of a scissor takedown while wrestling. With some seriously bad luck it ended dislocating my left ankle, tearing ligaments in it and fracturing a bone. I was taken to hospital immediately, my ankle was first pulled back to its normal position and then I went into surgery. Bone was screwed back together with metal plating and ligaments were repaired.
Despite sounding something really nasty, which it actually was/is, it will all heal up back to normal. Im wearing cast for 6 weeks (until the end of November) , then starting leg rehab and returning to the mats in 8-12 weeks time, so around Christmas/ New Year.
Fibula, the small leg bone was fractured and you can see all sorts of ligaments in the joint area.
Well, that’s that :)
