Title: How many times?
Post by: coldfeet on December 01, 2006, 10:13:46 PM
Hello everyone, hope all is well.....haven't been on the site for app 1 1/2 years after miniscus repair....but I'm backkkkkkkkk again with another operation coming up on 12/22/06

Question....How many times do u think a meniscus can be repaired?.....It's going to be the 3rd time since 1999....I didn't ask the Dr. because I just want him to fix it so I can get outdoors and go biking/hiking/camping and most important, mowing the grass!....thx and best of health to everyone...David
