    looks like i get to see a new part of the country....

    some of the members here that have been around awhile know ive got problems with my knees, have had 3 surgeries between the two aswell as a dozen large needles jammed in to deposit meds.....basically i lack the notch in my femur where the knee cap is supposed to ride and my knee cap just goes where ever it feels like and has destroyed most the cartilage in my knees.....have been taking opiate pain meds for them since i was 18, daily for bout half that time....the knee issues is what lead to me bulging a disk in my back and having surgery to fix it back in Sept......basically im 29 and am close to having bone on bone in my right knee have a lil more in the left and am a walking barometer more sensitive than anything NOAA has....

    have had two "local" knee docs tell me there is nothing to do short of total knee replacement and i should wait as long as possible before doing that, ideally another 26 years, not likely gonna happen.....first week of January i head over to see the sports medicine department at the University of Washington Hospital in Seattle for a third opinion.....have read enough that im bout willing to bet $100 they are gonna tell me the same thing the other two have but would like to hear it again before proceeding with the next step....

    Sorry to hear it's come to this. But while you're here, maybe you'd have time to meet up? Let me know if you've got time to kill - I'll be up in Seattle around the 10th myself.

    rattler - while you are here, maybe we could meet up as well...i know its not on the best of terms that you are up here in these parts, but maybe you, joel, and myself could get together for a cup of coffee or something, and take a trip out to my friends GH if youve got free time while your here....

    its possible.....will figure out from the wife which hotel we are staying at tomorrow and see how feasible it would be......i see the docs first Thursday afternoon but have no clue whats gonna be involved....might be a talk session and nothing else, might have tests that get scheduled for Thurs or Friday or who knows what else.....could wind up with nearly no free time or lots and i honestly wont know till Thursday afternoon....hoping on some free time, plane tickets are costing me the better part of a grand alone, so im hoping i have time to check some stuff out atleast.....

    Well, good luck. I went to grad school at the U Dub. It's a beautiful campus. You're way too early for the cherry trees to blossom unfortunately. My cousin has a wing named after her at the Med Center. She started out in sport medicine as I recall but moved over to neurology. Hard to keep up with everybody.

    Maybe you could visit a couple of the CP nurseries up there before surgery.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
