Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald was forced to give up his AFL career after just two years and 18 games due to persistent injuries. 

And speaking on Nova FM's Fitzy and Wippa on Wednesday, he revealed he is still in pain after undergoing four knee reconstructions to correct his sporting injuries. 

Fitzy explained his knee is now worse than before and he's tempted to fix it once and for all by undergoing alignment surgery that works by breaking the leg.

The radio host discussed on air the extent of his AFL injuries, following his time as a Sydney Swans and Adelaide Crows player between 2000 and 2002.

Fitzy had an impressive start to his career, but was forced to hang up his boots after injuring his ACL and needing reconstructive surgery on both knees. 

He has had reconstruction once on his left knee and three times on his right knee - going in for the third surgery in December last year.
