On Friday I had my first operation and was just wondering how many people on MR have had, or will be having, surgery. Mine was a simple knee arthroscopy to correct a torn meniscus. The surgeon I'd been seeing prior to the op said it was a strange injury for my age 'cause it's usually associated with degeneration of the knee joint. Either way, I got to sample some first-class tranquilisers and anaesthetic so I'm happy. I'm not happy about the ten days on crutches and self-injecting, though. So then, anyone have any more interesting stories?
