I have been messing with my knee. I thought that it had been do to having a seizure. It kept bothering one dr. took xray’s and just gave me a couple exercise’s to do , than nothing else. It kept getting worse. i went back to my Dr. she sent me out to get a MRI. It seems that i have torn cartliage in my knee. I go to see the specialist tuesday to see if we are doing surgery or just let it to heal on it’s on.

I tell you all i’m really missing the shop right now.

I have several tears in both of my knees (meniscus).....I feel your pain , Bro.
I have been able to avoid surgery with the help of my massage therapist and Chiropractor and strengthening exercises for the surrounding tissues/muscles.
I don’t know how severe your damage is , but the new surgery techniques are pretty awesome : )
Best wishes !!
ps: your signature is SO true !!! LOL

I had tears in both of my knees. Operated on a few times. Easy to fix. Until they are totally worn out, then braces will make you as good as new. Good luck. Be thankful it isn’t a shoulder!

Tim, I really understand how much you are missing your shop, I have not been able to do anything in mine for 2 years, but I’ll get there.
While you are laid up, make the most of reading, learning and designing items you can make later on.Watch some WW video and take notes, even find some small WW project that you can do on the kitchen table using hand tools, it all helps.
Best of luck, you’ll be back in your shop in no time.

Maybe try some intarsia using just the scroll saw ans sanders- things where you can sit and make some projects.

I feel for you, I had foot surgery last week, doc says totally off it for 2 weeks, it’s been 6 days laying in bed, going a bit stir crazy. been watching lots of ww videos, but that only makes me want to get out there more. Hope you gets better soon.

Thanks for sharing
