Here we go again

Yup, time to get the knee scoped out AGAIN Friday! God, I hate anesthesia, makes me sick as a dog for a day or two. Wish me luck kids!

Can you go ahead and send me the check for the cater gig?






It'll be fine, Nick, it's just a knee!
Larry doesn't even have one and he's still smoking!

Why I drove through Orangeburg, and St George, and Blackville, and Aiken on my way from Charleston to Atlanta one fine morning. It was a beautiful drive as I remember it. I believe it was US 78? Funny, I was on that route last week in Atlanta. Ponce de Leon Blvd , they call it.

It was one of those July mornings where it is so humid that you cannot keep your windshield clear! I remember the day before was 105 degrees! I started out from Charleston in the dark and watched the sun come up. I love those kind of days "on the road!"

Well I'm still here! Everything went well. GH, this is the second time I had this done also. My father just had both knees replaced 3 years ago, but I'm too young for that. This is the first time out of all of my surgeries that I didn't get sick from the anesthesia, I'm eating like nothing happened. My wife is taking me to the supermarket in a little while so that I can pick up a couple of shoulders to cook for Super Bowl. Thanks for all the well wishes and good luck next week Walter with your procedure.

Again, goodluck to both of you! [-o<

Thanks I have now been told that I should be going home the same day , just wont be going back to work for a few days. Something about not straining the eyes giving me time to adjust to the new lenses they are going to be putting in. First they do the right eye then in 2 months they do the left eye. I told them it had to be after Smoke on the Beach , LOL.

Sounds like things went ok! I never got sick from the anesthesia, they had to give me exrta to knock me out both times. Counting back from 100 I got past 90 and the guy laffed and juiced me up some more. Took me longer to come out of it though. I was not able to get out until 10 days after the procedure was done.

I feel for you. I had 3 scopes done before I turned 33. 2 on the left knee (partial ACL tear, cartilage frag) and 1 on the right (removal of 1/2 my medial meniscus). I never had time to notice if I got sick from the anesthesia. Doc gave me a big ol' shot of dimmerol in the recovery and had me on 2 mepergam every 3 hours. It was hard to remember my name...

Good luck!!
