    well about 14 hours from now i'll be donning a hospital gown and going under the knife for total knee replacement. sucks to have it done at 44 but hopefully it'll mean the end of constant pain i've had forever. i hear the discomfort is a lot less and the hospital stay and rehab are shorter but i made the mistake of watching a video online of the surgery and damn, that looks nasty.

    Um, this is Chef we're talking about.

    I think the masochism runs deep in this one.

    What she said.

    I figured the less I knew about exactly what they did when I went under the knife for cancer surgery, the better.

    The upshot was that they have dramatically improved the anesthesia from my last surgery in 1991.

    wanted to see the difference between the minimally invasive surgery i'm having and the "old style."

    well, that and i'm a journalist an idiot.

    Good point. I just saw his name it the title.

    I'm an idiot, although I do still stand by the masochism theory.

    When I saw the title thread, I was wondering if Chef was accused of being on the grassy knoll.

    -----

    A total joint replacement is going to be quite invasive. Still the nature of the beast.

    Good luck, Tex. Hope surgery goes well.

    I was going to ask if you were going to post during it, but that would be near impossible. :D
