Had knee surgery this morning, so I should be around a lot more for the next week or two.  If I post anything stupid during the next few days, please understand that it's the Vicodin talking.

Being laid up will give me time to watch a few movies and write two or three reviews.  Woohoo!

You'll be up in no time old friend. I have had several, and you are in way better shape.  KEEP THE KIDS OFF IT!  Trust me on this, not enough vicodinin teh world will keep that from hurting.

I've taken Vicodin several times for infected teeth. I hated it, because the first one would do wonders, but the second one, & every pill after that only made it worse.

Not that surgery is a good thing, but it's nice to have those times when you aren't expected to do anything but relax and kill time.

And when you're a little more mobile, you can limp around with your vicodin and make sarcastic remarks at people. TeddyR

Thanks everyone.  I haven't taken any Vicodin yet, though I'll admit there is some eye-watering pain at times.

I'm not supposed to do any mobility exercises yet and have to wait until my follow-up visit next week.  The mass was larger than expected and it had attached to the bone, so they had to scrap it off.  I've had the lump for almost 2 years; it finally grew so large (larger than a golf ball) that it was causing me issues due to being under the patella tendon.  They sent it off to pathology because the MRI and even removing it didn't give any clue as to what it was.  Probably some result of 21 years of hard use; I don't know many old Marines without knee problems.

In the medical field, it's never good to be unique.

Unfortunately I put some weight on it today during Andy's soccer game.  I'll tell that story in the other thread.

Had a fractured tibia and fibula myself, about 20 years ago. Slipped on a patch of ice. Required a plate, screws and pins, which are still in there. Very painful, a huge inconvenience, and that ankle hasn't been the same since. The one consolation was being able to basically take most of the winter off - from everything. Just staying indoors, reading, watching movies, sleeping, being waited on, collecting unemployment until I could go back to work. That part was sweet.

It's okay to be unique if you recover extra quick.  I know you're fine and will recover well.

I have to say, this really, really sucks.  Not being able to bend your knee past 45 without pain is inconvenient as all heck.  I can get it to about 90, but that causes eye watering pain.  The doctor told me to stop doing that.  My stitches come out on Monday if all goes well.

And Katie keeps telling me to take the Vicodin, but I haven't needed to.  Yes, it hurts, but it's not unmanageable.  Besides, when she suggested I should turn the leftover pills in to a neighbor who is a pharmacist, I told her that I was saving them for our date nights.  That didn't go over too well.

When I had my last hernia surgery, my surgeon prescribed me 60 of the strongest Percocet to deal with the post-op pain.

I needed maybe 2.

I assume he prescribed the rest so I could sell them on the black market to raise funds to pay his bill.
