Well guys, had the surgery and it went pretty well I guess. No complications or anything like that... just a lot of damaged cartilage. There was lots of long, fibrous fuzz in there that had to be cleaned out, and even a large piece of floating cartilage that kept trying to elude capture! It probably corresponded to the large divot missing from a section of cartilage that left exposed bone.
Overall I guess it was a mess in there.
There was no walking to my car, or any amount of walking yesterday. The knee started killing me around 9:30 yesterday night, and that began a pretty miserable night of no sleep and throbbing knee (I was given Vicodin for my post-op med and that doesn't work well for me). I finally got some Percocet today and have been able to get some sleep and move around a bit more.
So given all of this I think I will adjust my expectations and not think I'll be back on the tennis courts in 3 weeks.
