One of the side benefits of popping all the pills I did on the weekend was that it eased a lot of my knee pain. I was scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on the 24th but now it has been moved up next Monday – the 10th! I have an appointment tomorrow with the surgeon to go over the procedure in more detail. It is only a half hour operation and the doc said I would be able to walk away after the procedure! Wow! I do need to stay off the leg for 4 or 5 days so this is going to come as an unexpected way to earn a tough vacation.
