I had both sides and the adductor realeases done by Meyers yesterday, and I was one of the lucky ones. I felt well enough to check out and go the hotel with my wife-even stopped in the bar for a beer. Didn't need the percoset, but I may pop one tomight. Was able to walk a good mile in Philly this morning, then my wife drove the 4 1/2 hours home. It was helpful to have her there to help with shoes, socks car doors etc. For anyone by themselves, staying overnight would certainly be easier.
Meyers said I had two particularly large tears, so I think this was the approach I needed- Right now I wish I hadn't waited so long. We'll see how the rehab goes, but it would be great to be able to run again. I'm an old guy, so it may take awhile.
Willg, I forget to ask Meyers about bike riding, but i will when I follow up with them. that was the one activity I was able to do over the last year, and I realized that my knees will last longer (and my feet moved faster when I was I was still playing soccer.) I think it would be smart to keep mixing biking in with my running, which is only recreational anyway-I gave up races because I only like the trails and my knee can't handle the downhills.
Thanks again to everyone for all the good info. Good luck to Johnny-I hope you are finally on the mend. (I also like water sports, and kayaking, canoing and windurfing have been out for a year and a half)
If anyone is headed to Meyers soon, I might have a few more recommendations for you-especially about the hospital afterwards.
