Just got knee surgery today
PAIN, people PAIN!!

Tibial Tubicle Transfer (TTT) and an arthroscopy. TTT is breaking the tibia where the tendon attaches and moving it. During the arthoscopy they removed 4 pieces of cartilage, the largest being about the size of a peanut M&M.

The things we do for this game.

Hope it heals quickly for ya.
Will you be able to play again? Did your insurance cover it?
Get better soon!

Rest up and take it easy. I expect you back out on that ice come fall soldier. ;)

Thanks for the well wishes guys. I'm really lucky that my insurance covered it and I have a lot of family helping me out.

I should be able to return to the ice on about 4 months skating. playing in about 8 months.

thanks again.

I had a friend who fell off a ladder trying to prune a tree and landed on his knee...wrecked it really bad. He was out of work for a couple weeks...but he got some GOOOOD drugs. When I talked to him on the phone, I could tell that he was not all there.
I hope you have some good pain-killers.

they gave me vicodin, but the pain is still cutting through it right now.

I've had the 'scope done, and it hurt like crap for a few days, despite the Tylonal 3 they gave me. I can't imagine having the tendon moved! But in my case the surgeon managed to move my kneecap, so I had to re-do that, and it still isn't right (after 20 years!), so certain things cause mine to really hurt.

Good luck in your rehab. I was actually able to skate in 3 weeks, and played a slow league game in my 4th week of rehab, but like I say your injury sounds quite a bit worse.

Here is my story..i was in the net (my favourite position is goalie) playing hockey during grade 12 then i went down to save the ball from going in as it was coming to me slowly from the girl that shot it . Ok so i'm on all 4's and my glove covers the ball and my knee locks and everyone including teacher just walk away thinking nothing happens untill i'm still on my knees ready to fall to the ground on my stomach in pain then the whole class makes a circle around me seeing what's happening i try and get up..i make it half way up and just collapse to the ground on my face unable to get up at all holding back the extreme amount of pain i was in (most pain i've ever had by far...), 2 people help me get up and i sit on a chair holding back the pain and they send me home early (WHOOHOO) because there was NOWAY i could walk PERIOD! anyway i go home and come back to school like 4 days later and take it out again like 5 months after again but this time playing basketball...and my leg never touched the ground, locked in the air.

Now i go home again and start setting up appointments with a specialist and eventually go to surgery and it was a breeze, seemed like a few seconds went by after i woke up and though (huh? that was easy and fast...). Anyway i take it out again on halloween night when i rolled to the other side of my bed...i took my knee out atleast 9 times :shakehead and about 1 week ago i locked my other knee..so here i am like Pavel Bure with 2 bad knees :biglaugh: what's the odds of that happening, eh?

Ohwell atleast i had a winning record in goal alltime on floor hockey at 105-15-10 :p: and when i was playing with my class it was me (i was the best goalie) and abunch of crappy people who can't play vs the best of the class (they were good) so it's pretty much always in our end and i'm just owning them left and right and we won 6-1 :handclap: 2 easy i say...noobs :biglaugh: and i'm not even a good goalie..slow reflexes, not great movement, 1 shutout total, about 20 fights...players/goalies. :yo: My last 25 games i had 14 fights, i love hockey fights... :yo:

The doctors told me i would not be able to walk for atleast 2 months..it took me 3 weeks! i said ******* pain killers and rarely took them even if pain got bad...i'm used to pain and like to suck it up! i dunno why but i'm just like that for some reason...

Here is my story....

In a game of Ballhockey, I was running back for an icing call (play defense). While starting to turn to shoot the ball around the rink, the forward pushed me from the back and as soon as I started to pivot, I heard 3 "pops", just like the 3 guys from the rice crispies commercial, Snap, Crackle and Pop. My defensive partner told me that he heard it on the other side of the rink. Worse pain I ever felt. It turned out that I tor my ACL, Anterior Cruciate Ligament.

Had to wait 7 months for surgery, and when the time came the DR. said it should take about 45 minutes to reconstruct the ligament. When I awoke in the recovery room and the surgeon finally came in to see how I was doing, he told me it was the worse he had seen for ACL reconstruction. He replaced the ligament with my hamstring and had to dig out the old ligament from my tibia. The doc said it took close to 2 hrs to complete the surgery.

It took me 8 months of rehab for me to play my 1st game since surgery.

The Dr. gave me Vioxx and Bextra for pain and swelling, but I hate pain killers so I suffered through the pain and was up and limping in 2 weeks.

But what you did does sound painful also. Good luck with the rehab.

Thanks for your well wishes and sympathies.

I was taking the painkillers and suffering through nausea, but this morning was bad. Linda Blair in Exorcist bad. So I'm going to skip the pain pills and cling to Extra Strength Tylenol for dear life. I'd rather be in pain and be able to eat and be sociable than be in less pain, starving and cranky.
