I will spend my Christmas eve on the operating table. Busted my knee back in May. Torn meniscus. The procedure shouldn’t take more the three hours – I was told. I will be sent home on crutches. Doctor said I will be back walking normally in a few weeks – I cant wait. The take-home pain meds plan is in place. I will follow a pain scale and talk to my good friend and long time sponsor if I need to take any medication. And they will be remove form my house as I know I will not need them anymore.
