Surgery

I bid you greetings from the confines of my humble abode and the comfort of my sofa.  I’ve actually got a stream of ice water going through this handy dandy polar device,which replaces the old school method of putting a bag of ice on the knee, as I write this.  I’ve been down for about a week and half now recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery.  There’s really not much else to tell other than that.  I suppose I could explain the GIANT incision on the left side of my knee.  The debris and osteochondroma removal from my knee was fairly simple.  My ortho doc told me right before surgery that he wouldn’t be able to get one of the osteochondromas with the scope and he’d have to make that extra incision.  Considering I’m sick of the running pain, I said go for it.  The only downside is that it’s going to make my recovery a bit slower than normal from a range of motion stand point.  Hopefully, once I have the stitches removed on Friday, I’ll be able to move a little more freely on my left leg.  Until then, I’m the slow poke walking in front of you with one crutch.

I’ve included pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Hahaha.  Like I said, all is well.  Just enjoying the couch for a while, and being taken care of.
