Hi All,

Following the recent ups and downs over the past few months with the other incident. Ive made enough recovery to proceed with another operation. Some of you may remember a thread a while back about me asking for ACL cruciate ligament information, well it was for me.

The doctors here said it would be a good idea now im out of any danger with my existing injuries to go-ahead with the ACL replacement as it would forcibly make me rest as i wouldnt be able to walk.

So tomorrows the day, I'm heading over to sheffield tonight for surgery first thing in the morning. Keeping my fingers crossed yet again and hoping that its not as bad as ive been told.

Thanks,

Lew

Ah well, glad your improving again. Sounds as though you're well on the road to recovery.

Great, then after your rehab I expect you to be in training for the marathon - London 2012 is just around the corner!  Wink

Sitting on your arse for days on end will be far worse than the surgery, I know a couple of skiers who have had ACL surgery, they are very proud of their "Bionic Knees" and reckoned it was worth the effort.

I thought it was said that EWS wasn't you Lew, but good to see you are back on A.net.

And why have you come back as EWS, not TFSPhoto.

I messed up when trying to come back, my ex partner actually deleted my account with the help of someone, who i still dont know, and i couldnt get back with that username so i had to sign up with a new one.

Yeah with my current condition from my previous injuries, at the time i didnt want to get everyone going like what happened in the threads, people saying that my medical information was false and such comments, it upset me no end and i didnt want folks to be coming back saying that it wouldnt be possible to have this, as it would cause me only more heartache.

Quoting 9VSPO (Reply 6):

Im being paid by the NHS to go private, in sheffield. Its either i took the operation on the 16th March at sheffield or i be placed on yet another waiting list for the operation to conducted at Scunthorpe.. I think my choice was a little obvious.

Im heading over to sheffield now not to sure when ill be back as i dont know time-scales for this kind of surgery. Thanks all and see you all shortly.

Thats Odd, why would it allow Lew to sign up again with the old username.

And how the heck and why would they want to delete your username.

Hi Lew, glad that you made a fast recovery. This surgery you are about to undergo is way easier than the ones you endured before - it will not hurt everytime you breath! You really need to rest your knee afterwards, and when it is healed a good physiotherapy program should bring you back to your normal self.

Do you think people did that? I was under the impression that people in here were all trying to support you and finding it unbelievable the "via crucis" you had to go through, but not doubting what was happening.
Besides, not possible in Medicine does not exist. Everything is possible. You are having a S...y year, that is for sure - but this happens to a lot of people.

Anyways, I wish you all the best. If I can help you any further, just IM me.

Hi All,

Just to let you all know im home, had surgery yesterday morning under a spinal anesthetic, so i was awake throughout the operation and watched the whole proceedure on a TV screen. Very cool..  Smile

Couldnt feel my legs while this morning but i took my first steps again on crutches and mangaed to do half a flight of strairs too. It's very painful at the moment and ive been laid on the sofa since i got home about 2 hours ago.

Here's some photo's..

The room..





After i came out the operation, complete with drain!





Taken last night after a few hours rest, and yes, its a a.net t-shirt!



And taken about 20 minutes ago by Jade..



Thanks everyone yet again and speak to you all soon.

Lew

Hey Sabastian,

Yes the used the hamstring graft, that was the only part i didnt see on the camera/TV device. I did however see him taking it out my leg in the reflection off the lights hanging from the ceeling. The images above are taken with my mobile phone which i was allowed to have turned on in the hosptial as i was in a private suite (own room, toilet shower and tv e.t.c.) other then that the surgeon went through the whole proceedure with me, talking me through it and showed me my damage ligament before he minced it and removed it.

Thanks to everyone else, ill keep you all updated on my progression with this and my existing injuries.

Take it, thats becuase they have dosed you up good style.  drunk   drunk 

Did they dose you up a bit, when they were doing it or did they just numb your bottom half.
