Unlucky, Carl, it's horrible being immobile - wishing you a very speedy recovery, lots of time to read and research up on SW though while you are resting Smile take it easy mate.

Carl,

ive had issues with my knee in the past ( 3 ops to sort ), i found a support bandage helped a lot and some gel that you can rub in. can get it over the counter at chemist which has pain killer in it, warms up as well, sorry cant remember the name.

im in the same boat with shift work and losing the extra allowance when off so know its a pain when your off

hope you get it sorted mate

I do were a support bandage, but when i have shorts on the kids laugh, as they think i have one legged leggins on scratch Rolling Eyes

same from here, Carl. Keep us updated on progress. A couple of my mates from our footballing days have had to have knee surgery and has been a success with no more pain. Best wishes, keep positive Smile

Carl sorry to hear about this. As someone above said the surgery now is fairly common so hopefully they'll do a great job and have you up and running quickly.

Thanks for the comments guys! I have been told it is routine, but being my first ever op, it is a scary feeling, aparantly i have a cyst on the outside of my left knee, which is a result of a possible tear to a cartalidge, but they cant be sure as the cyst was in the way of the scan, i also have some scaring, so they r going to drain the cyst check and repair the tear, clean up the scaring and remove any floating cartaldge (which is causing my knee to lock).

Carl I know this may be daunting to you, but I shall do my best to encourage you to look at the Light Side of things. After the cyst on the outside of your left knee have been properly treated your health will be fully restored.


However, there's no guarantee that the nurses will be anywhere close to this HAWT babe as AussieJames has posted :



But then again who knows? Wink
