Dear Editor:Paul E. Anna was being especially Pollyanna-ish on Oct. 7. He completely neglected the other side of the injury story.I moved to Aspen in 1981 and had seven knee surgeries between 1983 and 1999. Despite years of physical therapy, I have not been able to ski since 1995. I had shoulder surgeries in 2004 and 2005 and now have to limit upper-body sports also.I know many people who have had multiple orthopedic surgeries and who have never fully recovered.Mary HamiltonBasalt
