All Knee, All The Time

So San Francisco was awesome. Seriously. We drank, we ate, we laughed, we did a photoshoot with a horsehead lamp. You really can't beat that. I will in fact write more about it in the next day or so.

However, this morning I got up early and went to the surgeon. Apparently I have two options for my knee. Wear a super sexy leg brace for the rest of my life OR have surgery. And not the surgery they would do on any other person with the same problem that I have. Oh no. You see, I am a freak of nature. I am hyper bendy (and yet I'm single, explain that one to me). Therefore, the surgery which would mostly be on my muscles would require a six month recovery time. Six. Motherfucking. Months. One of which I'll be in a hip to toe leg brace. Then, each week they'll bend the leg brace one more inch. Whee! Then I get to have more super duper awesome physical therapy.

Yay!

And this is why I drink.

So the question becomes this: Do I attempt to just get really, really in shape, wear a knee brace at all times (big one over the jeans when I'm out and about, smaller one under the jeans when I'm just at home with los gatos). OR. Severe ouch but my knee will never pop out again which means I won't fall down and go boom.

Thoughts, internet? I leave most of my important decisions of my life up to strangers. And coin flips. I'm nothing if not logical.

I hate saying it, but the long-term outlook would be to have the surgery. What's 6-8 months recovery and therapy compared to the rest of your life in a brace (waiting to possibly go boom again, or even require same surgery in a couple years?)? I speak from experience, and the cast/brace/PT for 5 months wasn't as bad as I thought. However, you need to do what's best for you!

I say go for the surgery. It may suck balls(sorry for the language) for the time being, but in the long run it will be a h-e double hockey sticks lot better than always wearing a leg brace. Just think...would I look sexy in my lingerie with a leg brace? Things that make you go Mmmmmmmmm.

That's a tough one. What is your weightbearing status going to be? Are you allowed to walk on your leg after surgery or will you have to hop around on crutches for 6 months. What exactly will they be doing to your muscles?

I'm a physical therapist so speaking from that standpoint I would tell you do it because you are too young to be worrying about dislocating your patella all the time. And, just because you don't have this surgery now doesn't mean that you won't speed your need for a knee replacement. And, I promise you, this surgery will be better than having your knee replaced. Good luck and do what's best for you.

If you wear the leg brace for a while, you might be able to run super fast like Forrest Gump. Of course, since you would only have it on one leg, you would just run in circles, but you could do it super fast.

I would probably go with the surgery since it would be a shorter time. Which ever you decide, I wish you the best.

Let me see if I have this straight:
1. Hyper bendy
2. Funny
3. Smart
4. Cooks
5. Bakes
6. Has a steady job
7. Likes guns
8. "Chesty"

How the fuck are you single?

As much as it will not be fun, get the surgery, my partner waited for 5 years to get his knee reconstruction and ended up with two bad knees as his good knee had to spend so much time compensating for its weaker mate. Biggest plus is the not falling down all the time though. Hope it all goes well for you!
