ACL and Meniscus Surgery June 9th
« on: June 06, 2006, 05:16:32 PM »
Well this is the big week.  I go in on Friday morning at 6:30 AM (why so early!  ::) ) for my ACL surgery and meniscus repair this Friday.  I am a bit nervous but am looking forward to having a good knee again.  Wish me luck...

Hey Kiter,,,
it's time to go for your OP! After that you be on the roads to recovery.
Like you, I was a nervous wreck before my OP... and I look back (exactly 4weeks) and smile at how nervous i had been  :P :P

but being on rehab, nothing is more satisfying than seeing your leg get and feel a little better everyday.
Chill for this 2 days(play games, watch movies and do stuff to get your mind off worrying :D) ... you gotta conserve your energies on perservering on your PTs after the OP... 8) 8) 8)
HUGS. We are all behind you waiting for your updates!!! ;)

Thanks Ruth,

I am way more nervous today.  I could barely sleep last night and I know that it will be even harder to get a good nights sleep tonight.  At least my surgery is at 6:30 AM so I won't have much time to think about it tomorrow.  I'll keep you all updated on how it goes  ;)
