Crutiate F*%#@!G Ligament

I tore my right Crutiate Ligament (knee) at the park and am on bed rest until I have surgery to repair it on Tuesday. My recovery time after the surgery is 8 weeks. I don't know how I am going to sit around for 8 weeks, the boredom will do me in for sure. The pain pills are great but nothing is worth this. Moms feel secure that Dr. Kim Carlson, the surgeon who did my back a couple of years ago will take the best care of me. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers. We are considering restorative stem cell therapy after the surgery to help my recovery and to keep arthritis from progressing too quickly, does anyone out there have any experience with this? Love,Neko

My airedale Rosco tore her crutiate ligament when she was 18 months old. She had TPLO, after the surgery she was given acupuncture. We are coming up on the 5 year anniversary of her surgery and she has never had a problem with her knee. Neko, just rest after surgery for the full 8 weeks, after that you will be good as new!
