    Back at it again and a weight lifted !!

    Well guys its been a long six days. I finally made the commitment to have a overdue surgery that I have needed for a few years. Seems like hunting or work always seemed to take precedence and finally my doc, surgeon and wife convinced me to get on with it after the first of the year. Well even though it was painful but not life or death I am glad it is over. I went to work for a half day today for the first time in a week and felt pretty good when I got back to the house. I took myself off the pain meds a day and a half ago and that in itself made me feel better over all. I just couldn't deal with the way they made me feel. I can deal with the pain better than the effects the pain killers had on me.

    Anyway hopefully in a few weeks I can start working out again preparing for this year (something I thought I would never say!!!). Surgeon has given me some restrictions on my routine but It doesn't matter as long as I can get back to some sense of my general routine. I am really looking forward to this years Elk season and glad that I wont have this hanging over my head. Anyway almost time to start putting in those permits for 2014!! Its hell getting older so you young guys take care of yourselves!! Mark

    Good luck with the recovery Mark. I remember when I had my torn rotator cuff fixed a couple years ago. My wife thought I was crazy that I waited until after the 1st of the year......just so it wouldn't effect my hunting.

    Keep after it. As we get older, seems like there are more and more things that start to wear out. I will be having ankle surgery the first week in March....soon as I can it scheduled. Got to get after it then and get ready for this fall!

    I hope the recovery is quick! Glad the surgery went well for you. I know what you mean about getting older, I'm only 43 and dealing with back issues. Surgery is likely in my future, not something I'm looking forward to.

    Wish ya the best, glad you weaned off the pain killers fast. I'm like you, after the initial shock type pain, you can keep the pills. I'd rather deal with it. Best of luck!!

    Good to hear you are getting back to a relatively normal routine again. Did I miss it?, what kind of surgery? I had meniscus surgery on 1/9/14. Crutches for 6 weeks! Today is week four. The physical therapy has helped but the boredom is brutal. I cant wait to be at your level of recovery. Good luck.
