    Default OATS procedure knee surgery

    Tomorrow I'm scheduled to have knee surgery on my left knee again. I've already has a meniscus repair and then micro-fracture surgery last year. Tomorrow is the OATS surgery. For those not familiar with OATS basically the surgeon goes into a non weight bearing portion of my knee and harvests good cartridge to transplant to the front part of my knee where the cartridge has been torn and since disappeared.

    Doc said on crutches and non weight bearing for 6-8 weeks as long as all goes well. This is my third surgery and both operations before this the doc discovered the injury was worst than what The MRI showed so we'll see how the third goes. Keeping my fingers crossed for a quick recovery this time around!

    I guess the 6 years of Marine Corp infantry and the last 11 years as a SWAT cop has started to take its wear and tear on this old body.

    Least I'm down during the winter season!!

    Good luck! My surgery was 1.5 years ago and aside from 6 months of PT and now having to wear a brace for sports, I'm back to "normal" (as if I ever was!)

    Yea, Jason, all kidding aside. Hope all goes well with the surgery and you make a quick and full recovery. Please keep us posted. I have similar issues in both knees. There's just no cartilage left up front and my patellar grooves are just destroyed.
