Reflections on a Knee Injury!

With one Fulham player, Grygera, heading off to Denver to see if Dr Richard Steadman can rescue his career, another has reflected on just what the renowned surgeon did for him.

Andrew Johnson knows he owes his career to the surgeon and has remarked in the tabloid press about his fight to get back his career,

"There is no doubt I owe him my career."

"The odds were stacked against me making a full recovery."

"He openly admitted it was the second biggest area he had ever had to repair, performing state of the art microsurgery that repairs and re-grows the cartilage in your knee."

"I remember walking into his office and his walls were covered in shirts from famous sports star thanking him for saving their careers."


And on the road to rehab, he adds,

"It was hard. Without dedication and support from my family and the medical staff at Fulham I would never have come through this."

"At one point I had to sit on my sofa with a machine that rotated my knee 80 to 90 degrees for 8 hours a day."

"And even after that, when you have become the forgotten man in many people`s eyes, you have to go through arduous rehabilitation."


The perfect mentor for poor Grygera then don`t you think!

Sounds similar to Freddie Flintoff's rehab. Hope AJ don't like the beer as much!
