    Hoping Rex's surgery went as well as it possibly could have.

    Are we talking physically or mentally?

    It's Rex after all....so they're probably somewhat limited on what they can hope to accomplish.

    Please get it checked ASAP. Many times, the biopsy itself can capture it. When my initial "scoop" biopsy did not get it, I asked for the largest biopsy she could do which was "punch" biopsy of 8mm I believe and it required a couple of stitches. Mine was one of the nastier varieties and the surgeon had to take a larger chunk. Even more unfortunately, the margins were still not clear and he had to take even more out a week later.

    It's not something to wait on.
    Its right where my brain/back bone should be. Im not sure they could dig very deep. I dont have insurance and i cant/wont spend the kind of money that docs and hospitals force people to pay.

    Kinda funny, I've always considered myself a pretty healthy guy ... never had surgery until the age of 44 and have had 3 (minors) in 3 years. Had the longest bout of being sick earlier this year than I've had in years .....

    Was feeling really good the past few months and liking my benchmarks in the gym and make a bad step and one snap creates a pretty miserable scenario.

    Lulz, we all know I ain't right upstairs any any brain surgery would definitely be "minor."

    I think the only thing they've been able to do there is install some rubber bumpers and speed bumps in my head to slow down the pea rolling around up there..... much like a pinball machine.... the same lights and sounds would apply most of the time as well.

    It's skin, so they don't dig to the bone. I'd just be more wanting them to take the larger skin sample in hopes that gets the culprit out of there, if there is one.

    I don't have insurance either. My surgery today was self-pay, so was my elbow surgery, and so was my skin procedure.

    In all 3 cases, I've seeked out great, reputable medical professionals who work really well with that situation. My procedure today was the most expensive, but most went to the facility and the anesthesiologist. Even though my surgeon drastically cut his fee, he was still willing to work out a payment arrangement. I scrounged to pay for everything up front to get the best price overall.

    The skin thing was not as expensive as most would think and if you want to call me, I'd be happy to share how my dermatologist helped me work the financial system in my case and what the overall cost was.

    Oh yeah, I remembered 1 detail wrong... They circle the incision spot with a sharpie and have you write "yes" instead of initials.

    Glad to hear that the surgery went as well as it could have. Did they give you an estimated time for recovery? I hope its relatively quick. I couldn't believe how long it took me for full recovery after a minor bisep tear a few years ago from pulling my bow but I am yeeeeeeaaaaars older than you are so hopefully you recover quick.

    Please get it checked out. Your PCP in many cases can do this for REALLY reasonably. Call them and tell them the situation and ask for options. Paying for a $200 appointment is well worth your future.

    Glad it went well. Bummer about the pain etc. I think I would have rathered the pain early though. My block worked so well I couldn't use my leg for 6 hours longer than they expected. It was a total PITA. You home or in hospital?

    Unfortunately, "several months" is all I know at this point ... 6 more weeks in the lock-out brace I've had the last week that keeps it straight. Then, I go into a bendy brace and the rehab part starts.

    Yeah, they have to since the drug part goes quick... wheeled me in, gave me something to relax while they put in the block, asked what kind of music I like, and I don't think I remember the 1st song coming on.

    Home.... checked into the center at 11:30 and filled out forms and paid... hung out for a bit after pre-op till the doc arrived (was really doing me a favor by coming down from Rose to the less expensive center for 1 patient) .... Surgery time was 1:00 and I was climbing into the Charger around 3:30.

    Probably the best part of not having health insurance is they get you the heck outta there.

    Glad the surgery went well and hope healing goes even better Rex.

    Being that I'm getting such a late start in strength conditioning I'm being very cautious to keep it safe and progress at a healthy pace for my age. I've got plenty of time to devote to researching how to do this right so I'm absorbing from what I've finally determined are reliable sources - a physical therapist is one of my favored sources.

    What I've learned is people my age (you're catching up too) is our reduced recovery speed from those just 10 years our junior and those younger age groups are what the vast majority of information and programs are written for. Of particular importance I caught is the even slower speed our aged tendons can recover and grow relative to our muscles. We older people tend to think we can just go at our muscle recovery pace when we need to pace our efforts to ensure our tendons and joints don't fall behind and *snap* it's long term recovery time and we have to start over later on (if you can even muster the motivation to begin again).

    It's been a struggle for me to pace for that approach because of my "impatience and give it everything I got" personality type towards things I like to do. The approach should be continuous improvement not go until it just suddenly ends...what's the saying: it's a journey, not a goal.

    Follow recovery closely, get healed and get back to your health improvements. You can still work on your upper body while your knee heals and I believe likely glutes on a Roman Chair long before you can do squats...of course, after your knee reaches a certain point your PT should help you know when.

    I got a more fuel efficient vehicle for the trek to the new job, just similar to what Dave had with the GDMF metro. I think the DMV does not like me though, they assigned plates for a guy that drives a Miata with the first three letters of BFQ...ya I'm taking them back, most of my friends and family have laughed at it.

    Thanks Andy,

    Yeah, I'll get back to the gym soon enough and keep things moving mildly on upper body and core, but I'm gonna leave the leg-work to just getting around for a while. Once I get to the bendy brace, I'll start that rehab slow and steady as I'm in no rush for any accomplishment, but just want to work toward re-establishing comfort and motion. That said, it will likely be 2-3 weeks before I re-invoke the truck's muscle memory on where the gym is located.

    No, it had just pulled completely off, so drilled holes and re-attachment of the existing tendon.

    I am a little disappointed that there was no JB Weld, duct tape, or baling wire involved.
