Another One Bites The Dust
 
Another One Bites The Dust

Just found out today that I'm headed for surgery this Friday. I've been babying my right knee since the car accident in February but it was still giving me problems. An MRI showed 2 tears in the lateral meniscus. Bring on the electric scooters and happy pills! :LOL:

Wow, sorry to hear that. While any surgery is certainly a serious matter (especially if it's YOU) I can tell you I've had my left knee scoped 5 times now. The good thing is with the modern technology you pretty much walk right out of the hospital the same day. Sounds strange but I don't think I was on the crutches for more than 2 days afterward. Back to the gym lightly lifting in 5 weeks and running in 8.

Good luck to you. Hoping you'll be back on your feet for the summer!!

wishing you a VERY speedy recovery !! although I'm sure it will take time to heal from something like that :(

Happy Pills scattered around. Take what you need! :P

Sorry you have to go in for surgery. It's actually a very non-invasive surgery if done right. My husband had knee surgery 5 years ago and he's working and doing Tile floors. :)

Nah, this is from the car accident in February yet. :-| I've been in a brace since soon after the accident but it didn't help and my knee was still swelling and felt weak at times....

When he said he had a surgery opening on Friday (I saw him at 8:30 yesterday morning), I jumped at the chance to have the surgery then since I'll have a long weekend at home to rest up. I'll be able to go back to work on Tuesday (with crutches) since I work a desk job. Not worried about the surgery. My orthopedist is good. :D
