No, This is Good
Okay, it may look like something bad, but it isn’t. This is my knee, 24 hrs after surgery. Disregarding the big blood spot (not to mention the ridiculously atrophied quad), the knee came through yesterday really well. Once they got in there they found that while my medial miniscus was indeed torn, it was not what was causing my issues, so they left alone. The culprit was a huge plica on the medial side of my patella. It was basically a big flap of extra tissue sticking out from under the kneecap, aggravating everything in the area. So snip, snip. All gone.
The knee’s a bit sore today, but nothing a strategic vicodin can’t handle. The doc said I might be able to get on the trainer by the end of the week.
Bummed I’m missing the Tour of Connect-the-dots this weekend. Colaviat Sutter Home guys are down there and I haven’t seen them since training camp. Also, MTB studs G. Kabush and T. Wells are racing too, would have been nice to get some shots of them on the road. Got toally swamped with stock requests towards the end of the week. Can’t complain about that though.
