... finally. I guess one of the drawbacks of seeing a top rated orthopedic surgeon is that, well he's a top rated orthopedic surgeon and takes a while to get into his schedule.
So, on 12/11 I head into the hospital to have the meniscus in my left knee cleaned out. It's an outpatient surgery, and recovery is 3 days bed rest then 1 to 4 weeks of light duty based on my swelling and pain tolerance. Almost 6 and a half weeks after Barton I'll finally be on my road to recovery. It was almost 7 and a half weeks...
I originally scheduled the surgery for 12/18. You see, 12/11 also happens to be my wife's birthday. Every year we've been married, we've taken her birthday off, gone to Noah's bagels for breakfast and then done a bunch of Christmas shopping. It's a fun tradition, and I hesitated to break it or make her birthday crappy by being in a hospital.
When I told her I selected the 18th over the 11th, her reply was "get it done sooner." I think she's tired of me being a gimp around the house. ;)
