I tore some cartlidge in my knee. MRI confirmed this. I'll be going under in the morning.

So I'll be home for a few days afterward. So if I say, some stupid shit in the next week. It will be the narcotics speaking to ya!

Not getting scoped? With the scope you are in and out in a day and drugs are minimal. CW

Yeah, like CW said, are you getting 'scoped'? If not, you musta busted it up pretty bad...

Good luck. The wife is going in for full knee replacement on the 5th of Jan. I'll be doing her job for a couple of weeks. Hoppy

I survived. Yes they did scope me. I have two cuts, with one stitch in each one. I tore up my cartlidge pretty bad. According to what my son said, the doc told him. As for me, after I woke up. They shot me with some morephene before pulling my IV. So I was pretty _ucked up for the rest of the day. Today/Saturday, I'm already up walking around. Even went shoping today. They gave me some Vicodin with Acetaminophen. I took one last night. Went today without any pain medicine. I don't want to get addicted to this crap. So I'm enjoying the pain for now. Now I must get into shape for the next Arizona shoot.

Well, glad it was a scope. Had two on one knee. Exercise frequently, work it out and follow your doctor's instructions.

Going to the Casa Grande shoot? If so, we can swap knee surgery stories (R cartlidge '76, R PCL '80, R ACL '82, L cartlidge + PCL '84) Was the poster child for experimental ligament replacement surgery. I like to call myself the $60,000 man. CW

I'll be their Cold_Warrior. This was my left knee this time. Four years ago it was my right knee. Six years ago it was my left shoulder. Looks like you have me beat by one.

I think "beat" is the appropriate term. [BD] CW
