Hey everyone,

I've had a change in attitude about all this now. I'm happy that I'm having it done and I feel confident that we have made the right decision and I am now looking forward to having a normal life style that is not stopped by a bum knee! And thank you to everyone who has helped me with gathering information and helping me to understand what I'm in for. As of the end of this week, I won't be in contact until after my surgery. Hope everyone is feeling well today!

Hey Bree,

I hope you have a great time at camp, and I'll be think about you!  I hope that all goes well!  I'm glad you're feeling comfortable about this now, and that you can envision the big picture.  I look forward to hearing from you post-op!

Hey everyone!

I'm closing down this thread now, I won't be posting on here anymore. I'll be gone now until surgery day so this will be the last post until then! Thank you so much to everyone who helped my through this and helped me in the decision making process.   :)

I will open up a post-op diary in the post op section probably titled "Bree's Fulkerson's Osteotomy and MPFL Repair". Surgery day is August 2nd, but I'm not sure when I'll get home and be able to post, but I will ASAP!
