...FOR SURGERY... Tomorrow!
Im so anxious/nervous... But the worst part of all is that it is the WORST possible day for it to happen... lol...
My mother, step father, and grandmother are in Orlando
My dad is going out of town
Deeder is writing exams
and my sister is MIA.
My step mom is going to drive me there and back but im still going to be stuck in the hospital (Assuming I even get in) for an unknown amount of hours by myself... Ive never been in a hospital before so Im ****ing terrified! I have had less then 24 hours notice and yeah... Very nervous here, happy but still nervous...
Hopefully I can get in tomorrow, and hopefully someone can sit with me and keep me occupied and relaxed...
Good Luck, hope all goes well. Try to preoccupy yourself and not stress yourself... easier said than done I know.

Knee surgery.... They're doing arthroscopy, drilling a hole in my kneecap to even out the edges, removing any loose cartilidge and performing a lateral release on my right knee and maybe my left...
I was told it would be 6 months, its been a little over 1
Oh wow, that's rough. Well, good luck with everything. I'm sure you'll bounce back quick.
Not sure if this is helpful, but a friend at work and his father were putting on a new roof last Thursday and his father slipped and fell off. Yup, Thanksgiving day. He broke both legs, tore both ACLs and shattered his heels. He still hasn't had his operation. You'll do all right!
I've had surgery before, you go to sleep and wake up and everything is done. Other then that you get ice-cream and stuff, people wait on you hand and foot and you can attach a bell to deeders forehead so if you get cranky you can ring it like crazy.

I had to have surgery on my finger. My gf couldn't come in with me. First time for me, so nervous. I hate hospitals too.
I actually almost fainted when I had to clean my arm. But the nurse through on some O2, then the seditives...
Nothing mattered at that point. Hopefully you find someone to pick you up, thats a totall bummer.

Just when you were starting to squat again...
Don't worry. I've been scoped 7 times. Seems you are doing a little bit more, but I was up and walking relatively quickly.
Now if you have reconstruction, that is a b*tch.

12 hours and counting until Ill know for sure if I get in... Cross your fingers, or pray for me (whatever floats your boat) because Ill be pretty miffed if I dont get in today... Simply because of all the hub bub and stress...
I waited 6 months for a donor tissue replacement surgery. The day before surgery, after working myself up, they called me and said the donor tissue had a defect and they had to discard it. That made my head spin. A few weeks later, however, a new tissue came in. I know how it feels to go through this. You'll get over it. Trust me. I had to stay over night. When I had arthroscopy for a knee clean up like you, I was walking soon after. My bone and cartilage partial knee replacement graft was pretty harsh and I am finally becoming normal again. It will be a year on December 25th. I think I may actually be able to start squatting. That would be nice.
Anyway, the hospital isn't scary. Those gowns they make you wear are, though...lol. Good luck!

You must be in Canada?
I have heard about people there having to wait many months for medical due to proceedural and beaurocratic administration.

It's not that bad! More than likely you'll wake up high on morphine while they feed you Popsicles.

God am I nervous .... and hungry
AHHH! I got in!!!
Surgery today! I imagine i wont be alive for the next week or so... not on here anyway... *Dances*
Goodluck with it! Im sure all will be good and you will be better than new.
To anyone else(since I dont think the OP will be able to reply), does anyone know what caused the injury to start with?
Good luck Ruff!
Put it this way, my mom was a nurse and she would sometimes assist in surgeries and those doctors perform those things SO MUCH ITS NOT FUNNY. Its normal to them. Don't worry, hope for a hot nurse and enjoy getting high.

Yeah, maybe you'll even get a sponge bath from a hot nurse.
