    Going in for Surgery "Again"

    Wish me luck!

    Have to be in Toronto for 6:00 am Monday morning for 4th revision of left Knee due to an accident at work.

    Man, I hate when it cuts into my riding time. There is still snow on the ground here in Southern Ontario but I know it will be warm in a few weeks. I expect to be riding again in 6 - 8 weeks.

    Worst part is I have to spend my Birthday in the hospital!

    Thanks for letting me rant!

    After they do the first artificial knee replacement any further surgeries to the same knee are called revisions.

    Ist one was a half knee,
    2nd was a revision to replace a worn plastic bearing,
    3rd was a full knee replacement,
    4th will be a full knee again to repair a loose lower section that was due to a fall at work.

    Lots of luck.

    Just follow the doc's orders and get all the pt, and you should be good to go in about 3 /4 wks.

    Both knees replaced 5 yrs ago. % mos. after surgery rode to Gillette and back, 4200 miles in 2 wks.

    Ouch

    I been this route three times and I can attest to the prep double UGH!, however after watching this from my gurney while waiting both before my procedure and afterward I discovered that only the victim and the doctor change, the same nurses handle whoever is the next victim. I mentioned this to my doctor stating they (nurses) must get sick of looking at that part of the body every day, all day. His reply was; for the amount they get paid it makes it a lot easier.

    Thank you all for wishing me luck!

    To lighten things up a bit:

    When I went in for several pre-op appointments I met with my aanaesthesiologist and he went over the minimal risks and we discussed several options available to me and when he finished he asked if I had any questions.

    I said "I presume you went to school for this?"

    He said "7 years past a Doctotate".

    We had a good laugh, good thing he had a great sence of humour!

    Hope to see all of you at a few rallies this year!

    +1!
    I've had multiple surgeries... 10, 11, 12??? (Losing count now)
    But never on the same injury twice.

    All the best, and may this be THE LAST surgery on this knee.

    Everthing went really well!
    18 days since surgery, off the crutches, got the staples out.
    Walking with cane, getting stronger.
    Hope to be riding in 4 - 6 weeks!
