medial meniscus and "other bodies"

wow – so much to update you all on – the holidays, my complete and utter total addiction to sports night, and my new years weekend with cb (by the way, ignore whatever he says about my “gameplay” – it’s not my fault he can’t draw worth a shit and his family is cruel and makes people “act out” shit) – and i will update you all, i promise… but

i got me some big fuckin‘ news for ya’ll.

that there picture, that’s a knee cap (well specifically it’s showing you a medial meniscus). that there picture, that’s my future. specifically my very near future.

next tuesday i will be going under the knife…

18 years ago i took a fairly dramatic fall that resulted in 3 tiny bone chips floating around under my knee cap roughing up my medial meniscus. the doctor then (and the 2 subsequent doctor’s that have had the pleasure of poking and prodding my knee) essentially said “yup, you got some bone chips in there; you’ll want to have those removed someday – in the mean time, here’s a knee brace; off you go”.

to which i generally responded with “why don’t you fucking cut me open and remove the “other bodies” so i don’t live with pain for the next 18 years”. (they call bone chips “other bodies” – sounds vaugly alien doesn’t it?)

interestingly enough, they ignored that question.

so there i was living off and on with sometimes marginal pain to sometimes blazingly intense pain – until this past november.

november was the beginning of the end…. my knee has progressively gotten worse and worse (tears may have been involved a time or two, i’m not ashamed to admit it). so i’ve finally found a lovely doctor who agreed to remove said “other bodies” in order to improve the quality of my life.

so this coming tuesday at 2:00pm my knee will be filleted and fixed.

i’m very happy about this.

in other non-meniscus news i just want to give a shout out to the original “nasty girl” who turned 48 today.

happy birthday vanity!

Good luck on your knee surgery. Hopefully they won’t have to slice too much and they can just go in through a small incision or two.

I don’t care if she did turn ultra-religious. She still look like a ‘ho.

Hooray – someone listened to you finally.

I wonder if they’ll do it laproscopically? That would be nice.

Well, here is to a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!
