Better I Leave


    I was sufficiently drugged.

    Glad everything went well Phil. Smile

      Daggum, that was quick!  Do they do that as drive-through surgery now?  Did you even get out of the car?  And tell us, how does coffee interact with anesthesia and pain drugs? Clown  Nice headwear, by the way.

        Love the lid!!! Very fashionable!LOL

            Love that shot of you, Phil!  I'm sorry there was more damage than expected, but happy to here the prognosis for your recovery is good and faster than you had anticipated!

            Will run for beer.

              Heal up fast, Phil!

                Hey Phil, glad your rehab has started & wishing you the speediest of recoveries.  (as you can see, the sole train already misses you badly!)  Please do try some swim lessons...triathlons are a blast, & I'm sure you'd really enjoy the challenge.

                  Get well soon.

                    I have definitely noticed.  Sad   Good news is that I'll be back sooner than I expected.  I've got three HM's planned for fall including Hartford and Hogsback.

                      Way to bust through it!

                       

                      Good thing you weren't in the same hospital at the same time as Pine Grove or you could have had a Sylvester Stallone-Awnold Schwartzennegger style photo op. And I don't think that would be pretty.

                        Good thoughts for a speedy recovery, Phil.

                         

                        Can't wait to see you posting about your next run.

                            Hey Phil...They released you, yeah? That's pretty amazing. Marina had the same procedure and she was hospitalized for 2 days. Forgive me if you've already explained this, but did they use tissue from another part of your leg or did you opt for cadaver? The process is more involved, but Marina opted for her own tissue.

                              I was in and out of the surgery center in four hours.  They used donor tissue and made it a point to use a thicker ligament the time.  I had this done in 2009 as well and they used my own hamstring then.  I had more problems with my hammy during rehab so I am happy that won't be an issue now.

                               

                              The doc also fixed my torn LCL and two meniscus tears.  He could not repair the larger meniscus tear so he had to trim it.  What that means is that I'm now at a higher risk of developing arthritis 20-25 years down the road if I continue to run this much.  I may be willing to take that chance.  I really don't want to give up marathons.  I just enjoy it so much.

                                Wow...4 hours and then home...Nice. Marina was under for 6!!! You'll be up and running in no time I'm sure. Take care my friend. Smile
