Happily married  ;)  We ran away to Las Vegas this passed April.  Only family that could attend was my brother who gave me away....aww! Actually it was 6 months ago yesterday. We got married on April's Fools Day...Fools rush in!!!! LOL!  We have been together for almost 3 years and he is my best friend in the world. I'm a lucky gal!

Only just noticed this thread :)

I'm 13 yrs happily married - not sure how hubby puts up with all my knee probs, I don't know what I would do without him, he's my rock and I love him to bits.
We've got two wonderful children as well.

Met my fiancee 5yrs ago on the internet, moved across the country to be with her and her two daughters (4 and 9), nursed her through her 2nd diskectomy(sp?) (she has degenerative disk disease), and through a severe groin bruise from a popped collegen plug during a heart catheterization.

She's been a huge help through my recovery.  Nursed me when I needed it whether I wanted her to or not.

She's the one that screamed at my OS when he refused to prescribe antibiotics for my infected pinsites until he could see them himself (he wouldn't take the home nurse's word for it), he wanted me to travel 2hrs in an ambulance with the external fixator in to be seen in the ER before he'd prescribe them.

Couldn't imagine trying to do the first 3-4mo post-op without her.

Single.  I was dating an OS (NOT my knee surgeon) when I had my surgery.  We split up over distance, not the op...  in the mean time, he's been a great friend and I'm very thankful for the referral he gave me to my current OS.   ;D
24y/o - had subluxing right patella, frequent dislocations, osteoarthritis.
Sept26/03 - TTO, scope, LR, medial plication & microfracture (right).  
Slow ROM recovery (126).
My new PT is awesome!!!
