Out of surgery...hopefully good as new - Page 2

post #31 of 46
Here' my Poopalotta recipie:

3 oz prune juice
2 oz apple juice
2 tbsp MiraLax
3 tbsp Milk of Magnesia
1 shot of espresso

Mix prune juice and apple juice together in a coffee cup. Heat in microwave for a minute. Mix in MiraLax, Milk of Magnesia, and espresso.

Shoot down in one gulp. Tastes nasty but it will solve the logjam due to your pain meds.

I can understand everything but the espresso. Could you substitute a nice pepper sauce?

I have IBS so the alkaloids in the espresso ensures that the cocktail actually works. Feel free to substitute the espresso for whatever irritates your bowel.

It wouldn't work for me: I drink Espresso like water. This is in my kitchen, 3 or 4 times a day:

Those alkaloids work even without IBS.

LMK and I'll bring the Ugandan Robusta to JH.

yes, it was. I had forgotten: alot has happened since now and then! If I wasn't limping around, then yes, that was pre-surgery. Nice to have met you: I hope you got some decent skiing in. The weather was total crap those few days!

Dawg, I actually got some skiing in on the 30th the rest of the time most of the lifts were closed (wind/power). I was just happy to be on skis after breaking a rib on the 26th of Dec.

So that's why you are hanging out in the injury forum...bummer

I skied with a broken rib a few spring's ago. It was annoying, but I could manage as long as I didn't crash a second time.

Update: I have been off crutches for nearly 2 weeks, and out of the boot for 4 days. Things feel slightly better, although my knee mobility is lousy at the moment. I am working on it, but can barely ride my bike due to the incision on the patellar tendon.

Doc says I can start skiing relatively easy (groomers) in another 3 weeks, and I should be full strength in another 9 weeks. But, the knee pain is going to have to decrease quite a bit before I even think about skiing. It will probably be around a 2.5 to 3 month complete recovery.

The good news is that my ankle already feels better now that the screws are out. They were really bothering me...

That is THE BEST NEWS I have heard in a long, long time!!

Isn't it funny how the knee is affected? There are things that get moved aside when the rod comes out (don't ask me for correct terms), and it takes a while to feel normal again.

You go, dude!

Definitely good news!
