Thanks for all the good wishes. I'm just a little frustrated tonight, because it's another 3-5 weeks of this before they'll think about opening up my knee -- but the good news is that this is something that can be fixed, unlike some of the things that might have happened or some of the problems that my friends have. Then I read that rehab can take another six months after surgery. And it just leaves me feeling a bit useless at the moment.
This will pass. But I'm really annoyed with myself right now.
