You are in great hands and will get a great result. Those signed photos are testimony enough. She saved those guys careers.

I would have considered the Germany thing but i had such and injury to 2 of my adductors where they were calcified and loaded with fibrosis.

Post surgery pain is well controlled. I had a open scar of 4-5" and I tried to deny the pain injection. It was short acting for 3 hours and I refused pain meds and walked to my hotel. My only mistake was not filling my percocet prescription because the first night i had trouble moving and when my phone rang at 6 a.m. i jumped and my 1st movement was painful.

I am 13 days out and I am doing wonderful. I am too out of shape to run so i will not even attempt it for a month or two. I have jogged 50 yds twicw with no problem. Just aching at the end of the day and my adductors shake like crazy after standing a long time. Meyers said they have not been working for 4.5 years so they are relearning. Told me the length of time is more of an indicator of healing time than severity of tear.

Good luck and I am anxious to hear of your success. Hopefully you brought your picture to sign for the wall.
