Knee repair

Post by curtis cutter » Fri Aug 14, 2020 9:40 am

18 hours post arthroscopic surgery to remove debris from my left knee, no pain pills for 12 hours and my knee feels better than it has in months. Should have gotten this cleaned out long ago and would not have been in pain and limping.

Just let go of it, it will eventually unplug itself.

Glad to hear you are on the recovery side of the surgery.
My first knee surgery was at age 16, and was the full open it up and leave a big scar. That took weeks to recover.
Second knee surgery (the other one) was arthroscopic and I walked out of the facility with a cane, 2 hours after surgery! What a difference!!
Of course the total knee replacement took months of recovery.

So you have a swift recovery ahead, and ... What a relief for you!

Never hesitate to operate is our motto.

I wasn't sure if this would be about a human body or a milling machine...

Glad to hear your good news!

As soon as I hit enter I thought ahh, someone is going to think I am talking about a mill.... :)

At least you didn't hit the mill with your knee...

I had an ACL repaired; I had to wait an impatient 4 months for it, and it's been great for the last 15 or 20 years.
