surgery went well. they must be doing anesthesia different from my last surgery 6 or 7 years ago. i was quit drugged after past surgeries this one, as soon as i started waking up is wasnt very drugged. the wife figures they just gave me a shot of morphine and an amnesiac. last thing i remember was getting on the OR table, the IV started hurting and before i could ask if that was bad i blacked out. surgery was about 45 minutes long.
the tear was just a very small one so he removed the cartilage and it shouldnt cause any more problems either way. the tear wont be agrivated and not enough cartilage was removed to cause future problems. he smoothed out the cartilage behind my knee, removing the spurs and folds that have formed since my last surgery. the doc also noted that there was a small tear in my ACL but that i had good stability in my knee so he just didnt mess with it. went to the admissions desk at 6:50am and was back in the car headed home at 12:30pm
supposed to be using crutches through tomorrow reguardless of how good it feels. should be back to work on monday with no problems
