Thumbs up Woo Hoo -- surgery on March 4th

<---- while "gimpy"

Jan 24th, I was moving a cart at work with a coworker and it started moving towards a skid of finished parts. I grabbed the cart, pulled it away and felt "something" in my right knee followed by pain.

Turned out I tore the meniscus on my right knee on the inside. The surgeon who rebuilt my left knee in 2002 ( patella graft) will be doing arthroscopic surgery on March 4th.

As he was scrolling thru my MRI pictures, he said " I've done over 10,000 of these. I can fix that in ten minutes" .

I'm looking forward to walking without pain and actually being able to sleep for more than 30 - 45 minutes at a time without my knee waking me up

Here's a picture of the cart with half of the tubes that were on. The tubes are 4" square, 11-1/2' long and weigh about 60 pounds each. The cart weighs in at 300 lbs empty

"Ouch" sums it up pretty good. I haven't slept decent in a month, I'm tired, miserable and have an even shorter temper.

Looking forward to having it fixed so I can get some good sleep and walk my dog.

I've had that surgery years ago, it sucked because it tore and would fold over and not allow me to open my leg/knee. Doc said said he could "fix" it, he went in and stitched it together

The meniscus is cartilage and won't grow back together.

After the initial surgery, 6mo later he had to go back in and chop all the jagged edges and "fix" off.

Smile Get well soon!

Both you and Mary have had far too many ‘ouchies’ lately here’s hoping things look up soon and that you heal quickly and completely, with as little pain as possible Morgan needs his walking buddy back in tip-top condition

Just for a laugh, say meniscus with a lisp. I had a boss (hated that sumbitch) that looked like Shrek, and talked like Mike Tyson. When he mentioned having surgery on his "manithcus" one day, I almost lost my shit!!

Tore mine while I was in the Navy. I didn't let them operate cause I've seen what Navy Dr.s do while "practicing" to become real DR.s. Mine eventually healed and I was able to finish my career. Most others I knew that had the surgery for that type of an injury got discharged for medical reasons.

I had knee pain once, X-Rays showed simple surgery would fix things up:

Damn Jeff, sorry to hear about the damage.

Let me know if you need help during recovery; you know we aren't that far away.
