Chodounsky cruised into the 2012 season with a mess of World Cup slalom points and a truck load of motivation. However the only thing he was short on was health and he ended up cutting the season short before Christmas to undergo surgery on his patella. Game plan was to be completely healed and training by May. The plan worked.
My surgery ended up being a pretty intense scope to clean up the cartilage under my kneecap and smooth out the movement of my patella. It was a lot of cleaning up, but a success, according to the doctors.
It was a good move on my part to decide to get surgery since the damaged cartilage was quite severe with actual chunks missing and flaps hanging loose. On the pictures, it looked like I had an ice axe swing away at it, and I could have kept damaging it more if I had continued skiing on it. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body and fix it, and I’m glad I did.
