If you have a torn miniscus in your knee, it's my understanding that surgery to repair it is quite successful. Good luck...sure beats arthritis of the knee, I can tell you.

Good luck with it Jeff! We'll be thinkin' about you.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Jeff, Good luck and I hope all goes well. I know how that WC can go.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Jeff, know the feeling. I've had both knee's done (one 3X) about 10yrs ago. Then I had the back surgery about 4-5 yrs ago.

The knee surgery didn't scare me too bad, but the back surgery did.

Although my B-Ball days are over now, as well as any sport for that matter, I get along fine. As far as my knee's are concerned, I'm A-OK these days. Still have the occasional ache and pain in them, but the surgeries went well and no major problems.

Take it easy fellow Hoosier, we'll be thinking about you.

Wormens Comp is quick to tell you your OK to go back to work- but they take their sweet time approving treatment to actually get you back in shape. I started with Carpal Tunnell in my left fingers 1 1/2 yrs. ago. Thought Id get it fixed before I retired- had sugery- Dr. cut a nerve controlling the palm of my hand. Fingers now fine- palm of hand dead. After 6 mos. of trying to convince Ins. Co. that I wasnt faking, had second surgery, temporary relief for about 2 monthes then the nerve seperated again. After 1 1/2 yrs. out of work,everyone is scratching their heads what to do next. They think I can do a job thats taken 2 hands to do for 39 yrs. and all of a sudden do it with one hand. :x :x :x :x :x Frank

I'm certain things will go well. I've known several folks who've had knee surgery, and not a one has turned out ill.

My Mom had knee surgery a few months ago after falling in the ditch in front of my house. :oops: :oops: Several doctors told her she was too old and would have to get used to the idea of walking with a cane for the rest of her life. She spent a lot of time and effort finding the right Doc, but after a few months of recovery she's as good as new. We'll be thinking of you and hope it all goes well!!!
