    • Arthroscopy is the name

      11 years ago

      OfficeJeebus

      Forget about every injury I ever told you about concerning my knee, because they're all lies I tell ya! To be more specific, it turns out that there are no ligament injuries, no dislocations, or rather anything else that I've already been told.
      No in fact the injury is much more simpler than that. After examination of the MRI results, all that it would appear to be is the dislodging or basically falling off of the cartilage surrounding the joint. Now, that in itself is not entirely good news, but, it's a helluva lot better than a ligament injury.

      Now the swelling it seems is the result of broken blood vessels in the bone which is bleeding out into the joint. So there's not much there that I can do to stop it. Ah which brings me to my next tidbit of information. I don't know if I mentioned it before or not, but from the injury came a bone fragment. From that same area nonetheless, in fact, that simple little bone fragment is what caused my inconceivable pain in the past, and what prevented me from straighting my leg on the day that I injured it.

      It is confirmed though that I have extensive bruising to the bone. Just contained in that area really, but nevertheless, that is fact. Fractures to the bone? Perhaps. I don't recall everything he said. It was a long morning after all.

      So now that I've put the icing on the cake let's get to the middle of it all. As I already mentioned the inevitable, it is in fact real and is happening. Tomorrow. Noon to be exact. Yes I will be going under the knife. Arthroscopy is the correct terminology for the procedure. Ah as I am reading here, it says that I have an orthrochondrial fracture? Ah I can never read Doctor's handwriting. But yeah, something to that affect. The surgery is simple. Three small incisions in the knee, at which a camera is then inserted to get a better view of what's going on inside. Once everything is found out, the surgical part of the procedure commences. For me, this will involve the reattachment of the cartilage, for hopefully it adhere back to the bone. If not, then something called Articular surface smoothing is done. Which involves drilling small holes in the bone and pulling blood vessels through to stimulate the growth of new cartilage. And that bone fragment that I mentioned must be found, wherever it went. It will then be determined if it can be stuck back to the bone or removed. If it is too big, then an incision would need to be made to remove it.

      Total time for all this? Give or take an hour to hour and a half at most. Stitches will be removed six days later, and from there, therapy starts I assume. From the 3 to 6 month recovery period for a ligament injury down to the now more reasonable 4 to 6 week session of recovery. That's great news for/to me.

      So depending on how I'm feeling tomorrow after the surgery, which from what I can assume will not be all that pleasant, I'll inform you all on how everything went. Best not keep your hopes up. With my father off from work on Fridays and Saturdays, I'll doubt I'll on until Sunday depending on the situation. So until then, I go to prep myself for the day ahead.

      Later days,

      Pretty much has been forever since my last update now hasn't it? I mean, I've been pretty much neglecting all of you with my extended periods of absence and static page. With hardly any updates, I don't know why you would keep me as a friend right? But then again, I can collaborate. See for the majority of this past week, I simply did not have internet running to my computer. Why? Because since the 27th of December, the day that I reluctantly received my Xbox360, I've been switching, or rather transporting my modem back and and forth between my 360 to nonetheless connect to live and to my computer to use the internet. With it being just out of reach from one another, I don't believe I have an Ethernet cable long enough to stretch the distance. And even if I did, running it under the temporary rugs with myself still being on crutches is not really the best plan of escape.

      Oh and for an update on my injury? Well I've been out of school now for the past 4 weeks has it been? Half of that being winter break. But yeah, I'm pretty much going stir crazy. It would even appear that my injury is far worse than originally anticipated. Preceding from that rather painful and uncomfortable Doctor's appointment, it would now seem feasible, from what I remember him saying, that aside from the ACL injury, which is not torn but stretched rather, but the ligament on the left side, or MCL for better terminology is in fact shredded or perhaps torn. And last but not least is a possible dislocation of the patella, or more formally known as the knee cap. Of course, none of this is known for sure until the MRI results are examined. Which will be, unfortunately on the 17th, or next Thursday. However you want to put it.

      And I can now officially say that I detest the use of crutches. I was never taught how to use the things from that excruciating 4 hour wait in the emergency room. Let me tell you, the working staff at that time wasn't exactly jolly and nice. But aside from that fact, I adapted. In fact, I even went back to school to simply pick up my work and try myself out to see if I was able to function back in that setting. The results were poor to say the least, as the cement floors and long hallways as well as trips to the elevators were exhausting. Felt like I was back in gym class I perspired so much. Even having to push myself through the heavy metal doors proved to be a hassle, as I nearly fell flat on my face. So after an unsuccessful attempt to reach any of my teachers to collect my work, I went home knowing that day that I definitely wasn't returning until I was willing and able.

      So now I wait, for the inevitable I already know. Which is surgery. And that's fine with me. It's certainly not surgery that I'm concerned about, but rather the therapy afterwards. And the estimated time for healing and full recovery? 3 to 6 months. Hmpt. I have to get back to school sometime. Just for that little Health class that I need to graduate. But maybe I'll get a cane. That will certainly be interesting. Get a sword cane. Just to silence those who would poke fun at it. I can say this though, I most certainly will not forget this experience. And damn well will be afraid to go out of the house for fear of it happening again. But I know I can't live that way, and so I'll just have to bite the bullet and be cautious.

      Man I've been craving my favorite Italian dish for so long now.

    • What a Wonderful Life. NOT

      Well unless you go to school with me, I doubt you know of my injury. Last week Thursday, with just one more day of school left before Christmas vacation, I go and tear a ligament in my right knee. Great. Just great. Not mentioning the pain that coincided with it, that's not even the worst part! No, because it happened so close to the Holidays, I have to wait two whole fucking weeks before I go in and get it examined for the surgery that follows I assume. And guess what? That appointment falls on January 2nd! The last day of my Winter break. So if I don't get surgery within that week then I'm stuck with a stiff leg and crutches attending school. Oh, that's going to be a helluva lot of fun.

      So let me tell ya, it's not fun having your leg stretched out all day will what they call a "leg straightener". It gets extremely uncomfortable. And your ass gets sore from sitting around all day. And sure it may seems nice to you to get waited on all day but I hate it. I despise it so. Having my mobility meant everything to me, and now that I've lost it, it's just eating me away inside.

      So I hope your holidays are merry and filled with cheer. As for me, they will be lived with pain and torment. Good night, and hopefully I will speak to you all another day.

    • Ups and Downs

      11 years ago

      OfficeJeebus

      Ok, so obviously it's been awhile since you last heard from me. From a journal, at least. But I'm going to be honest with you, because frankly I've been lazy. See, pretty much I've been stuck on this daily routine from day in and day out for past 2 weeks give or take now, majority thanks to school. It involves mostly waking up, attending school for an excruciating eight hours, coming home, dinner, shower, bed five days a week for four straight weeks. But this is normal school life regardless so theres' no point to go on complaining.

      So, seeing how it's been so long and all, maybe a few updates are in order. Life's been, how you say, “ho-hum†for the most part with the exception of school of course. There's the wear and tear of gym that's definitely put a stress on my body due to being so bent out of shape. But as these things go, you get better at them obviously as time rolls on. And as for the homestead, construction has abruptly halted. I mean, we have rain gutters, but no where for them to drain. We have railing posts on on the deck but no railings to catch you if you were to lean too far over perhaps. So when will it be completed? Who knows? Spring perhaps? When the snow is all melted? It seems our carpenter has took the money and ran. But he can't run far regardless, he is my brother after all. Oh and the weather here is horrendous! Pretty much for the past two weeks or so it's been tiny little snowstorms every other day! I must admit it was fun at first but now it has just fallen out of hand! When will it stop!?!?!

      Which now brings me to my bad news, that is, last week Monday my computer crashed again, for the THIRD time since I brought it. So for the past week now I've been using my copy of Fedora Linux on my Vista RC1 partition. It is simply a backup, to use Firefox among other utilities until I can hopefully use the recovery console to fix my XP partition and rid that blasted Blue Screen of Death! So for everyone on XFIRE and Yahoo and whatnot who been wondering where I am or was, those are my reasons. Sorry.

      But for every speck of bad news there's good news to counter-act it right? Of course! I'm proud to say that I have finally convinced my Mother, note I “mother†as the one who makes the deciding factor on cash spending to make the switch over to the Hi-Def world of things. As in LCD goodness! That's right , just this past Sunday my mother and I purchased, ok I know that sounds weird but meh, we got two, count them, two new HDTV's! And guess what? We can't open either one until Christmas! Damn, that hurts.
      And because I'm feeling big-headed right now I want to boast. So here I list the two that we purchased:
      42"
      32"
      UPDATE: Even more good news! School has been called off! Woo! Thank you Mother Nature, for ice storms.
      UPDATE 2: Got my computer back up and running! Simple fix, took only five minutes or so.

      So I’ve been putting this off for awhile now, with it now being November 1st and all, and myself being tagged no later than a week and a half ago, of course my leave of absence for over a week, and then again for another two days or so, I assume that I should finally face the facts and get things done. First off, I do apologize for being gone so long for those who noticed at least, I commend you. But there are instances in my boring life that come up ever-so often in which I focus on one task at hand and put off another. That being, Red vs. Blue.
      Secondly, I have to live up to my end of the bargain with ten random facts about nonetheless, me.
      1. I’m a pasta lover till the day I die.
      2. I’m in love with the 70’s. (Yes, the entire era)
      3. I’ll swoon over anything Star Wars. (And be proud of it!)
      4. I can honestly say I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
      5. There is nothing I hate more than change.
      6. When I was young, I tended to struggle with reading and the like. Now I excel in it.
      7. I guess you could say I’ve always been one to plan things out ahead of time.
      8. I’ve regretted more things than I can remember.
      9. I always take things in as they come, for there is nothing to fret about.
      10. I love to procrastinate as much as the next teenager, but that doesn’t mean the work won’t get done. (Crunch time, I’m looking at you)

      And finally, over my little leave of absence, I attended a little Halloween party of sorts. As it was a costume party nonetheless, I’m sure all of you would like to be enthralled by a few pictures of this said party. Now I never said they were the greatest quality or all, but I still think they turned out alright for their intended purpose. With that note, enjoy. (Pictures will be posted in my images section)

      Happy belated Halloween everyone!
      And remember, Christmas is only 54 days away. smiley0.gif

      So yeah, about that new journal. I'll get to it one of these days. My reasons being that these past two weeks have kept me so busy, with school work and whatnot and the renovations on the house. I've hardly had any time to myself as of late. Be paitent, and henceforth it will not be long until another day dawns and a new journal emerges.

      I won't go on another six-month "vacation" unless I'm offered an opportunity to visit alternate dimensions and acquaint myself with all my possible variations.

      ...so I can organise some ludicrous protection squad that overlooks the multiverse and burns harmful timelines out of existence with a pretentiously immense amount of mirrors.
