Wife had a small ski accident

Hi,

Earlier today my wife fell, twisted her knee and needed assistance to get off the slope.
She was limping since then, but did not feel any pain, so we did not pursue any medical treatment.

Now it's night and she experiences severe pain, up to the point that she momentary fainted and fell down in our hotel room.

What do you think? Should I rush her to the emergency room, or is this just panicking and we should wait for the morning?

Re: Wife had a small ski accident

Any muscular, impact or open injury should be seen too very quickly. Regardless how brave you are!
Do you know what hidden damage there is? No, so go get it seen to.

Good luck and keep us posted

Re: Wife had a small ski accident

If the pain was bad enough for her to faint, then you should be taking her to a hospital. It may not be anything serious, but it COULD be. Better to be sure.

Re: Wife had a small ski accident

Definitely yes she should see someone and get the injury checked out ASAP. If it's painful enough to make her faint, it needs looking at. Where you go could depend on where you are at the moment. If you are in a ski area you might try a local doctor first as they will have an extensive experience of ski injuries and know where to send her if the injury warrants further tests. But don't tough it out because what looks like a minor injury can have long term effects if not treated immediately.

Re: Wife had a small ski accident

Thanks for asking... She has a torn tendon and must use stretches now.
She will probably need a surgery in a few weeks. Looks like there are other, much worse, types of knee injury, so I guess we are relatively Lucky

This seems like a relatively common occurance, so I guess we can give this thread a rest for the time being
