Brad Smeele - Blown Knee Video
 
It's crazy watching this seemingly normal set knowing that there is going to be the impending doom of him blowing his knee. I thought it was on the 10, but i was wrong...

Hurts me to watch. I think Im done wakeboarding.

Been there, done that and hope it never happens again. Would never wish a blown knee on anyone. Absolutely a horribly painful thing. The injury itself, surgery and rehab are all a bia.

no fun

i can't believe all the fluid drained out of that knee

kyle_L 06-24-2010 8:05 PM

that is the drain post surgery removing the blood from the surgery. that wasn't much at all. now the lady who took out the drain did an AWFUL job. It is supposed to be one fast motion, pain free, unlike how she did it.

Thumb ring on the nurse, never a good thing.
My knee was tapped after about 5d, relieved alot of pressure and pain

Thats hard to watch.

Yeah it was not much fun to be honest... the injury itself didnt hurt all that much but the rehab process was grueling.
Thanks for the support.. I am now back on the water and working my way back to riding at 100%, keep an eye on bradsmeele.com for all updates, videos, photos, blogs etc..
