Tomorrow's TTO & ACI
« on: October 28, 2013, 06:39:23 PM »
Hey guys. I am going in for surgery tomorrow. I'm having a Tibial Tubercle Osteotomy, and cartilage implantation. I am nervous, and excited to not be stuck with as many limitations, does any one have any unexpected moments to share, to help ease my anxiety about it? :)
I know its mostly anxiousness from change and it will be for the better...
Also, have you guys tried the spinal anesthesia? I have that or General anesthesia as my two options. I would love to hear your experiences! THANKS!

Healing....for now :)
