hey monte!
hope your surgery was a success!
Isn't going to happen until this coming Thursday, the 23rd. So by a week from now I'll probably know if it's a success or not. I'll know even better after the scheduled 'recovery' period of six weeks.

because i am becoming "unstable"...and i think about this,and become worried about slowly deteriotaing..please!..monte! get out there as soon as you can!

(h.h.!)
j.t.
Knee surgery is something I discussed with the folks at the VA about 2013 or '14. The doctors there said I needed to get my diabetes under much better control and then they would consider it .... once it was bone-on-bone. My right knee is starting to annoy me a little, but it's the left knew that has torn cartilage, torn tendons, torn ligaments and torn meniscus, but they said I have to tough it out until it's bone-on-bone. I do have a knee brace that I wear quite often that helps to some degree. I guess 'deteriorating' would be the proper descriptive term, but with my health issues I just tell folks it's the pits to get old and fall apart.

I was doing fine, for the most part, and got out hunting (big game, upland game, waterfowl, rabbits and critters), fishing, and naturally metal detecting of all sorts that included a lot of hiking into remote sites and/or spending a full day of active hunting. That was up until September of '88 when I injured my back and that slowed me down noticeably, at least for a while. Then I started dealing with diabetes and associated ailments in '91 when back-related issues cropped up again.

Was issued a cane two months before I turned 44 because of my mobility issues, related to my back and legs, and had back surgery in July of '95. That helped for a while then it was back to the cane full-time, then a walker in 2001. Laser surgery to both retinas thanks to the terrible diabetes, and once we start getting older and less healthy, it seems we are prone to get less healthier even faster. sad smiley

My oldest son and I had been planning out fall deer hunt that starts the end of September and got tags drawn for an area we like, but the doctors and nurses canceled all my hunting this year due to the surgery that's coming up that will hopefully reduce a lot of pain and get perhaps 80% of the mobility and strength back in my right arm, shoulder, hand and related neck area. No aggressive use of or trauma to the neck and shoulders for a few months, and then be cautious.

I can still get out and do some detecting, but except for about 10 months or so after back surgery, I have been using a cane in my left hand since early '93, and I sure can't cover a site like I used to or hike into out-of-the-way places like I once could. I still do all I can to get out and enjoy this great sport as I continue to age and 'fall apart.'

In your case with your term, hang in there as best you can and 'deteriorate' as gradually as possible.

All the best as you enjoy this great sport,

Monte
