After many x-rays and MRI’s I was told I had a torn ACL and needed to undergo immediate surgery. I was really worried but what worried me more was Galilea was complaining about pain in her ankles and wrists. She had many tests and months later she was diagnosed with Junior Rheumatoid Arthritis. On May 5th, I had my surgery and needed to go to PT for an estimated 9 months and so did Galilea. We promised to never give up because our goal was to play soccer as soon as we could.
Physical Therapy started at the end of March 2013. We both had the same therapist and the same appointment days. We would sit and watch each other recover. We both also had many doctor appointments. Although we would push eachother to try just a little harder we both were very sad and angry that we couldn’t play the sport we loved.
Months passed by and we graduated physical therapy. We were both very happy but that didn’t mean we both could return to playing soccer. Only Galilea did. She was taking lots of medication and getting weekly injections to help the arthritis pain be relieved. Me on the other hand still had knee pain and a fear of getting hurt again because if I was to tear my ACL again I would never return to playing soccer.
