You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Thank you all for the wellwishes. It all went well. Now for a sexy hospital pic.
I am scheduled for the morning of Febuary 7. Yesterday I went in for pretesting and got the green light. I also got my cold therapy machine, potty riser and shower chair.
It's not nice to mess with cranky old dudes home alone on pain meds.
Well, I went for my presurgery exam today and the doc asked what muscles in my thigh were bothering me when I brought it up again. He got this suspicious look on his face and sent me down the hall for a hip x-ray. Much to my surprise my hip is totally shot! So now the knee surgery is being replaced by a hip replacement. Then in 4 to 6 months he will do my knee. Right when I thought it was going to be not too bad I got hit with a double whammy.
For the past year I have been suffering with pain, pops and an increasingly difficult time walking. So I just started the ball rolling to have my right knee replaced through surgery. The MRI today showed that my right Tibia is basically mushrooming and getting weaker structurally. In addition the quads in my right thigh have become a mess since I have not been walking correctly. So now I am waiting for the surgeon to have it scheduled.
