Damaged Ligament Bruise

I’ve been off crutches for a week after I dislocated my knee, and the bruises that I already had when that happened are beginning to fade.

However, a few days ago as I was visiting my sister, she noticed that the back of my knee was massively bruised. I hadn’t even realised (it’s a difficult place to see anything much even when you’re trying, as I’ve discovered) because it didn’t hurt, but it was one of the most painful places while my knee was still dislocated. And the doctors said that I’d damaged and somehow “stretched” (but not torn, thank god) the ligament so my theory is that the bruising is from that. Because while I’m no ligament expert, you can see how the bruise is pretty much in a straight line, and if you feel the back of your knee you’ll see how there’s something just under the skin which I’m guessing is the ligament that I damaged. This theory is supported by google image search so it must be valid.

From what I can tell, it looks like it’s fading now, more yellowish anyhow. Fascinating stuff eh!


Bruised and dislocated

The bruises are mostly still from crawling through a secret tunnel the other night. However, last night whilst dancing in a highly intoxicated state at Get Dancy!, I fell over and landed on my knee somehow, and noticed that the kneecap was pointing in a highly unnatural angle. I got it back in place somehow and carried on dancing probably, and making out with someone certainly, but it’s pretty sore still so I didn’t sleep well and can’t walk properly and have phoned my mum to come pick me up and take care of me and tell me that everything is going to be ok.

 

 


Christmas Party bruise

First of all: I’m truly sorry for the atrocious quality of this photo and the one in the next post. My actual camera has died for some reason, so it’s all phone cameras and webcam for the time being. You get the idea though.

 

Second: I know that this happened at my work Christmas Party, but no idea how. It was a very adult Christmas party and the most outrageous thing I did was dance with no shoes on for a few minutes. Nevertheless, this was here when I woke up the next day:

 


Sarah

My friend Sarah sent me the below picture of her thigh. She says she got one of them in work (in a cafe??? How do you get bruises like this in a cafe????????) and the other one whilst DJing at Revolver last night (while I was busy drinking, dancing to Pulp and eventually preparing myself for the walk home, the result of which can be seen in my previous post…).

That’s how we roll, yo.
