Thank you all so very much, for all your thoughts and prayer's.
Scope went fine, had a Flap Tear in the Medial Meniscus, which was removed. The Medial is the one on the inner part of the knee joint. The Surgeon did find a strange bone matter under my knee cap also. He did remove this also. It looks like a very large piece of rice, that didn't belong there. He could not find anywhere in there where a bone could of chipped off. He said the finding was strange then. Well that went off to the lab. Waiting results on that. But he did say it was of a bony material ( like ). I found I was having problems with the crutches, I think because all these years I was so use to putting my right foot and leg forward. So I used the walker unit instead. Hope to be walking without devices by later today or sat. Surgeon said as soon as comfortable it will be just fine to walk on it. I'm in good to great spirits, thanks to all of you here. That helps so much, hope you all know that, and that means alot to me also.
Some minnor reading if anyone would like it below.

Hi BB... so glad to know all is well with you. Wishing you the best for a speedy recovery. Will be interesting to know what the Dr. found under your knee cap. Please let us know. Like to see you more often when possible.

Hi Badboy, very glad to see you around again and that the knee surgury went well. I am sure that you have been in a lot of pain. i have often been told by people who have encountered this type of surgery, that it is very painful and it takes a long time to heal... It is good to see your flashing lights back. Red

red, just having the knee scoped isn't that painful, but total knee was for a couple days. Scope the knee, and one could be walking without any devices in 1 to 3 days, I know the last time I was, and planing on this time also.

Hi Bad Boy
Sounds like you are doing well and on the road to recovery. The meniscus surgery I had on my right knee was my better surgery. I used crutches for the first two week after surgery, then returned to using my cane, which I still use.
Hope to get rid of the cane after the replacement.
Still no word from the doctor on scheduling surgery, been five months since the judge granted approval for treatment.

Hope you knee heals quickly!

I'm glad to hear that you are recovering well and not in too much pain. I wonder if that piece of "bone" that was removed could have been a calcium deposit or spur. Let us know when you find out.
