Arthroscopic to repair a torn meniscus. Anyone ever had this done?

They tell me I'll only need my crutches for about a day. I hope so; I am hoping this will enable me to run again in the near future. Or at least walk and hike without pain.

Had a complete reconstruction 35 years ago. Been good since then.

You should have no problem.

Get well soon. Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

I've had three ACL replacements, but not just the meniscus.

The arthroscopic surgery's pretty amazing.

Best of luck. You'll be in our prayers.

Good luck, Theodore. I've lived with a tear in that knee area for about 10 years now.

I can totally relate to that; I tore this about 19 years ago in the Army. At least the VA is being kind enough to repair it for me.


Thanks for all the well wishes!

It's like a Steve Martin comedy at my house right now.

I come home from work this morning and I'm planning on taking a nap before I have to be awake later. The hospital is going to call telling me when to be there tomorrow.

My house is in literal chaos. My wife is convinced that if she doesn't deep clean the house, to include shampooing the carpets, I will die of some horrible post-operative infection.

The washer and dryer are running, the dishwasher is running and my wife is running around like a chicken on speed trying to get all this stuff done.

Then she starts vacuuming and I hear her scream bloody murder at the top of her lungs. She stubbed her little toe so hard while running around like mad that she broke it and is hopping around crying and limping asking me to find some tape for it. Ouch!

I get her the tape and try to convince her to forget about all this craziness and rest her foot, but she presses on.

Minutes later she is screaming again and I run out there thinking she further injured herself and she's knocked over the carpet shampooer, spilling cleaning solution on the carpet.

The good husband I am, I am of course thinking, "Can you please suffer in silence so I can get some sleep?"

Freaking madness around here.

We ended up both doubled over the kitchen sink laughing at how preposterous the whole scene was.

She is fighting through the pain with masking tape on her foot, determined to finish what she started. She's literally taking our dog to be shaved as I type this. I'm getting ready to try and take a nap after putting a corned beef in the oven set on low and slow for the next several hours.

At least I have a girl who loves me this much! Smile

LOL Hope it gets better. And if not, I hope the reporting stays this funny.

I broke my right great toe when I was a young G.I. doing a crazy stunt at a party when I was twenty-one, about forty-six years ago. Hurt like hell. Went to sick call the next day and the young Captain MD told me there was nothing to do about a broken toe except let it heal and endure the healing process. Ordered back to duty. Told me to lace my boots tight. Said I would develop serious arthritis in my senior years. He knew his stuff. Smile Your wife should heal nicely. And forty years from now she'll have a very large jointed great toe if she's around to enjoy it. Smile

Right about now I'm sure you're in dreams till the alarm goes off. Friday evening you'll be comfortably situated back in your home, and the foodie that you are, will probably be in some sort of culinary bliss. Be back on your feet soon!
