Final Knee Surgery Update

Well, as of 8/18/10 I'm officially on the right road to knee surgery recovery.  All those blood tests, cultures, Xrays and body scans found nothing seriously out of whack with me. 

But my leg still hurts. 

They think it may possibly be due to my sciatica rearing its ugly head.  But it could also be from some remaining inflammation in the knee (not unexpected at this stage).  So they gave me a few anti-inflammatory pills for a few days.  If the pills don't help it then it's probably the sciatica.  If that doesn't work they will declare me 4-F and no longer eligible for the draft.

The fun will begin again sometime next year when they do the right knee.
