    11 in the morning, I'll be getting cut open to (hopefully) repair my ankle... After a few attempts of physical therapy, and a year and a half of pretending it would get better on its own, I'm just gonna go through with it...

    I'll be on crutches for about six weeks... Lame, but I'll get to do the easy sit-down jobs at work for a month, so it won't be all bad :)

    It shouldnt be too bad. One of the guys at work I know just had the same thing. He was actually up and about in about 3 weeks. Good luck!

    I see your post count jumping in the near future though...

    :D

    I'm back...

    Everything went well, I'm just feeling like hell right now from all the drugs and not eating all day... The first thing the nurse tried to feed me was root beer and chocolate pudding... Yeah, I upchucked that in a hurry :mad: It was good pudding too...

    I'm gonna go have some Vicotin and get some sleep, so long

    glad to hear everything went ok. I know that feeling!! Just beglad your not on oxicotton. That stuff messed me up. I fell asleep in a lazy boy and started dreaming that a bear was chasing me so I started running. I woke up on the floor approx 20 min later and there was a huge hole in the drywall :) I can only deduce that I really thought a bear was chasing me and ran head first into the wall... If I ever have an opperation again, I'll use vicodin and just deal with the pain... that stuff is crazy scary

    It all started like three and a half years ago... I was playing volleyball, came down and twisted the crap out of my ankle... The doc in the ER said it was just a sprain and I'd be alright in two weeks... Well, six months later I still wasn't alright so I went to an orthopedic specialist who sent me to physical therapy... That worked about as well as it would, and I got myself into the Air Force... That was pretty dumb, but I'm not known for making wise choices :)

    I aggrivated the injury at basic training, got sent home, did more physical therapy which just made things worse, then decided to just live with it for a couple years before deciding to do the surgery...

    it still pretty much hurts like hell, and I'm supposed to call my boss and tell her when I'll be back to work... Hell if I know, I'm not going in there if I'm hopped up on drugs, I'll be pretty well useless...

    Ah well, more time for CK5 I guess...

    yeah I feel for you. I have had shoulder problems for a few years now and have just recently had surgery to correct the problem after having previous surgeries that didnt work or didnt fix the problem. I am also "taking it easy" and have a few months left before I can hit the gym again, and i'm starting back to school in a month so it wont be soo bad when have studying to do, atleast it will be something.

    Regards,
    Remington
