Knee Surgery Tomorrow

The Huck behind the Upchuck will be having his left knee's defunct ACL surgically repaired tomorrow. I'll post as often as I can (and I still plan to meet my obligations under my Blogging "self-nudge"), but blogging may be sporadic over the next week as I contend with the pain (and the pain medication!) following surgery.

I have to say that I have a pretty high pain tolerance threshhold, and I really don't like the side effects of pain medication, so my inclination is to try to put up with as much of the pain as possible and work through it as rapidly as possible.

We'll see how it goes.

Wish me (and my poor, long-suffering left knee) well.

You take care and stay all the way off that knee don'play around wit'it...no poking or prodding, no tickling.
Jeez, I ran into this problem young back in my basketball playing / hay-hauling days in the School for Unsuccessful Professional Juvenile Delinquents.
That's right, the SUSPJD.
Anywayz... it got to where the pucker would pop out all the time. Finally, I guess my body figured it out, ofter Structural Integration (Rolfing).

You rest easy, post us about Big Pharma and Pain Medication???

I'll be glad when the knee is all fixed up! The jello & pain meds will be waiting here for you.
