Well I'm sitting in the lobby with my wife Waiting to head in for knee surgery. Torn meniscus and a micro fracture. They will be trimming off the tare and poking holes in the bottom of my bone to release bone marrow and blood cells to hopefully form into a protective layer and replace the missing cartilage. 6 weeks off at least. BLAH!! Wish me luck and a little prayer!!!

Good luck! I know all about knee issues. Im 39 and waiting to get a knee replacement. Ive had everything done but that. More cortisone shots than I can remember, Supartz injections, complete ACL reconstruction which tore a 2nd time after 10 years. Bone on bone with arthritis setting in. And now my good knee is getting bad from over compensating for the bad knee for so many years. Rehab is usually key with a lot of knee surgeries so good luck and do everything they tell you in rehab!

Been there... It sucks... One thing to remember, although not sure if will apply directly to you... After my surgery (when I was 29 years old) I had alot of swelling... I went back and they drained it... It was instant relief front the throbbing pain I was having... If your ok with huge needles being wedged under your knee cap and you have alot of swelling afterwards, don't hesitate to go back and see if they'll drain it... Felt so much better after, they'll pulled 160ccs of blood out, back to back weeks.

oh yeah how could i forget that "pop" as the needle gets through the cartlidge...but once its drained your knee will feel so good and flexible. i got the lidacane spray on surface so other than the pressure i didnt feel it.

Had it done years ago when you ended up with a scar that looked like a railroad bed. After two weeks and recovery going slow, I took a trip to Michigan and decided to get into a trout stream and fish without putting pressure on the knee. The constant need to be using the leg while wading did the job. I was walking without a crutch in five days, slowly but with little pain.
Good luck on the surgery and think about putting on some waders and hitting a lake or stream. Tell the doctor and your wife that it is a sure fire way to speed up the recovery.:D
