Day 1

So I had my meniscus procedure done this morning. Got to the hospital at 5:45am to go through all of the pre-op stuff and the doctor started the procedure at 7:30am. It took all of 16 minutes and I woke up at about 8:30am. I felt a little groggy but other than that no real issues. Had a short appointment with one of the rehab people and she gave me a list of exercises that I should do at home. At this point I don't have any rehab sessions set up - they will evaluate me in a week to see how I'm progressing.

Got home and iced it for 30 minutes and am now doing the light exercises that they gave me. I'll be switching between exercise/ice at certain intervals over the next couple of days transitioning to exercise only as the suture pain and swelling subsides.

So far, so good.......
