    Knee surgery


    I think I might have to have orthoscoptic knee surgery again, but I don't reamember how long I was out last time.
    Has anyone been thru it and remember how long the recovery was? Also how much does medical or disability pay?

    Not to bad I guess. I think I have that torn and a town acl. So about 2 months downtime.
    I also thing I need surgery for my shoulder. Its dislocated like 25 times already. Everytime I have to goto the er.

    Sorry buddy, but a torn ACL is MUCH longer than that the last time I checked. I've had TWO acl's done. First one was a year before full release, and second was at least 6 months...but a full year to get back to strength. Unless a lot has changed (your body can grow ligaments faster) since my last surgery, it will be at least 6 months for a torn ACL.

    Wow. Thats not good news. If I remember correctly last time I had had surgery they told me my acl was torn but they didn't fix it. This was like 8 years ago

    How much time off work? For each situation.
    How much does disability pay now?

    TDI depends on hours worked and how much you make a hour, they ask for your last gross statement before going out, ( I am out now due to gall bladder)..and its been 3 weeks heading back to work this weekend.

    good luck, dont push it, enjoy the time to breathe
    RIP Ryan, :(
