another surgery on the horizion!
« on: December 20, 2007, 10:40:04 AM »
Hello everyone, well after returning to the OS yesterday, I found that he is going to have to do another lateral release on the Left knee.  I had one done in 1999 and that was the WORST knee surgery that I had ever had..............I am not looking forward to going through it again, however, I am looking forward to being out of pain with this knee and getting somewhat of  a normal life back after it is all over.  Surgery date is 1/7/08.  I will keep everyone posted!

Good luck with the surgery - I love the date thing!!!  So there must be reason why he is an "x" eh.  Tell him happy birthday!!!  Sorry, grumpy tonight for some reason, I should not take it out on your partner...lol

Really hope the surgery goes well and you get that pain relief that you need.  Have a good New Year and check back in to let us know how you do.

Be well,
Deborah
