Knee Surgeries 1 & 2

Standard

On May 29, 2014, I had my double knee arthroscopies.  That’s right, BOTH knees were ‘scoped.  The Right knee had a lot more going on with it, than the left.  Older problems since I was 12 and a lot more was done to it, including removing a plum-sized bony growth between my knee and thigh!!

On May 29th, around 7pm, during a 2nd trip to the bathroom, I ruptured (tore away) the Patellar Tendon.  That kept me from being able to lift my R leg.

This is my knees a couple of days after surgery–you can see the bruising around the knee.  This lasted for weeks!
