...kaput, kablooie... it's a goner. It went out on me for the hundredth time, only this time, I'm sure she ain't goin' back in. At least not without another stupid surgery. My knee first blew out in high school baseball, then in a motorcycle wreck, then finally in law enforcement. I've had a couple of arthroscopic surgeries, but this time it's going to take knee replacement.

My wife wants me to go to the hospital, but I know there is nothing they can do tonight, so I'm waiting to see my own doc in the morning and then he can send me through the steps... for me, it never pays to do things without jumping through the insurance loops.

I'm not overly concerned about this other than getting back to work. That's the problem with being self-employed, when you ain't working you ain't gettin' paid. So pray for a super quick recovery for me... I'll update this after I see the doc in the morning.

I will say a prayer for you brother. I never was a prayer man but over the last month I have been, and wether it be a subconscious motivator or the real deal, it works. Nothing on a subconscious level, I drove 35 miles yesterday on an empty tank with not a dollar to my name, nothing but finger crossing and prayers, and I made it to a gas station and waited for a half hour till my check cleared the bank. tomorrow I go for my MRI and I hope and pray they can make sound judgement to get me fixed,back to work, and providing for my family ASAP, and I will pray for the same for you.

Thanks, gents. My wife just rubbed it down and about killed me. Laughing Now I'm sitting with some heat on it.

Boulder&Briar, I don't know if I've caught your first name yet, but I DO appreciate the prayer and I'll be covering you too... we'll limp through this together. Very Happy

Well, prayers MUST be the answer. I got it straightened and can stand and walk on it with a cane. So I'll just rub some WD-40 in it and I'll be as good as new! Laughing

Nah, it's still really swollen, I guess I still need to get it checked out in the morning... maybe. Wink

You need some duct tape over the WD40 for support Smile Seriously, I hope you get some good news in the morning

Sorry to hear! Hope it heals up! I trashed my knees at a young age. Surgery on the right knee after years of mogul busting snow skiing, bike riding 100+ miles a week, and running 4 miles a day. Now I cannot run without getting tendonitis, bike riding is like taking your life in your own hands around here and haven't snow skied in 24 years.

Sorry to hear the news brother. I'm another one on the broken joints list (in my case right foot and ankle) so I truly share your pain. pale

Best wishes for a good recovery.

Thanks, guys. Just got back from the doc, just as I expected... x-rays, mri, surgery... blah, blah, blah. Oh well, just hoping for a quick set up of the surgery and recovery now. Rolling Eyes

Commiserations. Unexpected but I suspect not welcome news for you brother.

I hope they sort it quickly. Was the Doc able to give you an estimation, at this stage, of how long you might expect to be unfit for work post surgery?

Thanks. Nah, at the present time I really don't know. I guess I'll know more as soon as they get me in for the mri so I'll know what I'm up against. The good thing is, my job is not too physical, so if I'm able to at all, I'll jump get back to work really quickly.
