    Default Knee op....

    Well folks, i'm off tomorrow morning for my knee op. The surgeon does not think the damge to my knee ligament is so bad that it warrants replacing.

    so keyhole surgery is what's happening tomorrow...i'll be out tomorrow evening and home for the rest of the week, spending most of my time on here!!!

    the worrying thing is that my physio reckons the damage is worse than what the MRI scan shows and thinks that i'll need to have the full op in the very near future because the ligament feels as though its in a bad way!

    anyhoo....see you guys on wednesday!

    Good luck m8. Closest I came to a knee op was as an arthroscopy (look around inside the knee with the keyhole instruments) to see if anything needed done for a suspected ligament damage as the MRI scans weren't conclusive. No surgery needed (or they would have done it at the same time) but still enough disruption to the knee that I was on crutches for a week.

    So I know exactly what you're about to go through! When you wake up it feels like someones put a balloon inside your knee!!

    Hope it all goes well.

    All the best mate, i know its easy to say but its got to be for the best

    The hospital called my wife today to book her in for her keyhole surgery to remove her gallbladder as she got a gallstone stuck in her bile duct earlier this year and turned as yellow as marge simpson.

    Shes in on Thursday and is very nervous about it so i wish you both luck and will probably be online alot later this week as somebodys got to be around to look after the littleuns

    cheers everyone

    hope everything goes well for your mrs Steve.

    Dean - i messed up my knee back in March, no isolated incident where the ligament went, but i think it must be football induced. basically, it hurts when i twist it, bending and running on it is fine, it's just the twisting. physio reckons the anterior cruciate ligament is knackered!!

    i should cancel the surgery and get the vectra-c pit crew to do it at Heritage meet!!
