Surgery is a Bitch

So I recently received my third ACL receonstruction, which like a fine wine, is more enjoyable over time.  This one was even more of a doozy as it was a dual operation, where I had ACL Reconstruction and an Osteotomy.  I forgot how insanely painful the first week of recovery acutally is. It involves a constant drug induced haze coupled with the inability to sleep for more than a couple hours due to sharp constant pain.  If I had to pick my favorite part, I would have to say it would be living on the 2nd floor of a duplex where the bathroom was downstairs.  I have been extremely lucky to have such amazing friends to visit during the first couple weeks and provide endless entertainment to feed my boredom.

 

For your enjoyment I included a brief video of the advancements of technology.  I now have the ability to pay for a machine that will bend my knee for me hypotheticaly making the recovery process easier.
