    Good luck. I had my left knee worked on Jan. 7th. It was supposed to be a quick trim but it ended but being worse than thought. I am now in a brace and no weight bearing for 6 weeks. I am going nuts!!! Better raid the redbox.

    Thanks everyone, sorry for the late response. Work has been hell recently, oh and I am enrolling in DeVry so my "spare" time has been absorbed with prep work.

    I haven't divided mixed numbers in 20 years, and it shows when my 10 year old laughs at me.

    Paco... Hang in there, don't push it... the first few days are the most important. The surfaces of the knee have to work themselves back together... Your knee needs a break-in period, it's not a Glock...

    I had arthroscopy on my right knee in 1985. I was lucky and ended up with the #1 surgeon in the world. I had a torn medial meniscus, the cartilege on the inside of the knee. I had no pain after the surgery. None. I was given pain medication on discharge, but I didn't use it until my back went out 6 months later. Arthroscopy is one of those major advancements in medicine. A rapid recovery from a surgery that used to involve an incision that opened up the leg and was quite a surgery. So you should do well. I wish you the best.

    Control the swelling and you'll be able to control the pain.

    My son had 2 knee surgeries and went on to wrestle in the state championships (2 years in a row).

    After his 2nd surgery, they stuck a drain tube in the knee (which kept the knee from swelling) and he said he had absolutely no pain. Went back to wrestling in a couple of weeks!

    Good luck. Just remember to take it easy after wards. Sometimes that seems to be the most difficult part.

    Good Luck! I will ditto take it easy, as I sit here waiting for my surgeon to call me back. Got on it too fast and now have an inflamed knee. The cortisone shot is a bear. Bike riding is a good recovery tool as long as you live somewhere warm and flat.
    Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

    Like N. Texas, nice and flat and usually warm.

    Thanks all for the tips and well wishes. Keeping my butt on the couch will by far be the hardest part. This surgeon did a scope on my shoulder, fixed a torn calf, and helped me with my sprained MCL.

    I think I need a frequent shopper card, between him and his PT I think I am their favorite patient

    Would it help to move your computer next to the couch?

    What's your idea of recreation? Football, followed up by rugby, then full-contact basketball with a bunch of angry felons?

    Good luck and take it easy Paco.

    In the meantime you can still practice trigger control and dry firing.

    Worst part is, even if your knees get back to 110%, your wife can still kick your a$$.

    I just borrowed a mobile desk from my Dad so I can have my laptop next to the couch.

    That does sound fun, but I got all of those injuries in TKD. I take it seriously and train as hard as I can, guess I'm just getting old.
