And the saga continues. But this time, the end is actually in sight!
I went to see The Man #2 this week. AND HE ACTUALLY GAVE ME A SOLUTION! Hallelujah, amen, praise Wonder Mutt, and all that good stuff, we now have an answer to getting the worse of my two knees finally fixed. It’s not a guaranteed 100% fix, but it should be enough to let me run more than a couple of miles. FINALLY.
So while I wait and sit back while the doc’s office takes care of all the insurance stuff, (say WHA??), I’m on a mission to drop a few pounds. I figure it will only help speed up the healing process if there’s a few less pounds weighing down my poor old beat up joints. After all, they’re going to be made brand new by one of these bad boys.
Well, maybe just a wee bit smaller, but you get the general idea. Knock me out, smooth me out, wake me up, and watch the post-anesthesia shenanigans commence. (I have a history of being quite comical when coming out of anesthesia. Just ask the hubs about the ride home after the infamous wisdom teeth extraction incident.) Three days on crutches, 4-6 weeks recovery, and girlfriend is BACK IN ACTION. Can I get a woo hoo?!
Sadly I will be out for this, otherwise I would regale you with a photographic play-by-play. Not really, but I bet some of you got all excited for a minute there didn’t ya? It’s okay. Admit it. Blood and guts and bony parts are awesome aren’t they? Yeah, not so much. Thankfully, I’m not expecting a whole lot of blood loss this time around. I mean really, this guy does this for a living. How much of a mess can one guy make in 15 minutes? Oh right. We’re talking about a GUY. Oh dear…..
Enjoy the ride.
Have you ever had surgery before? How did it go? Did you have the cast of Seinfeld dancing in your room afterwards?
