I just read the comment above and decided to contribute. I was participating in the sport of mounted games. I came off my horse at speed and landed funny, hearing a big snap. I shattered the top of my tibia plateau. I had surgery the day after my accident. All happening Right at the beginning of my riding season. I am now stuck on a couch which is very hard for me. I am a very independent person and I had to move back home so someone could drive me to physio and doctors. The doctor said no walking for 3 month. I am doing aggressive physio and slowly my knee is beginning to bend again. It’s a very slow painfull process. They also told me the screws will have to be removed in about 10 months.
