Well, that’s what I feel like at the moment. Went back to my orthopedic surgeon today because of the problems I have been having with right knee that started when I was out in San Diego. Now I’m scheduled for surgery number 6 to include Arthroscopy, Meniscectomy (this would be the 6th one of those) and Chondroplasty (that’s a new one to me). Chondroplasty means ‘reshaping the joint surface’ – ouch. I like Dr. Adkison – he’s a straight shooter – no need to go through another MRI – with my history, previous Arthroscopy and the amount of swelling I have he knew what was wrong. He said I could have tried going the physical therapy route but the “relief” would probably be temporary, if any.
I suspect all the walking I did in San Francisco didn’t help any. Then being on my feet while in San Diego and the walking in Knoxville for the TN – AF game. But I wouldn’t trade those memories for the world.
Just means I won’t be coaching the little kids for a while but I had already warned the folks running the program that I could be out.
