Back From Surgery

I just got back from my surgery. Everything went well with no surprises found in my knee.
The doctor repaired both my lateral and medial miniscus's. The doctor also cleaned out some "crystals" form what they call pseudogout.
According to the Mayo Clinic... Pseudogout is also called calcium pyrophosphate deposition (CPPD) disease, pseudogout gets its common name from its similarity to gout. Pseudogout and gout both occur when crystals — one type in gout, another type in pseudogout — form in the fluid that lubricates joint linings, causing pain and inflammation.
The doctor also said that I have moderate arthritis in my knee.
So for the next couple of days I will take it easy and then I will try to start putting some weight on the leg.
After taking a couple of prescribed pain pills, I think it is time to head off to bed and relax for a little bit.
