Good luck buddy! It's a little late now, but hope you went with the sharpie! Too many stories of people getting the wrong leg worked on!

Whats up fellas, hope everybody is well and had a good labor day weekend. Well today is Thurs. the 11th and I've finally made it home. Exactly one week ago surgery was performed and was a success. Surgery took just over 5hrs. On Sat. morning doctors came in to change my dressings and remove the 2 drainage tubes in my leg. The first tube was removed with ease. The second tube on the otherhand was not so easy. The doctor told me he was going to pull on the tube with a little more force. So he started pulling and pulling and pulling and all of a sudden SNAP!
The tube broke clean off at my knee with a piece of it in the doctors hands and the other stuck inside my knee. So Sun. night I went in for my 2nd surgery, they recut me open went in and retrieved the tube. That took just over 3hrs. So now I am home and on my way to recovery. Thank you all again for your support and wishes. See you all on the water soon.

Word has it DRA campsites are filling up fast ! No J/K, take it easy for awhile and get your post count up. Do you have the X Ray's at all, I heard you broke something but would like to see it. So was it a fashion air that took you out for the summer ? Just trying to make lite of the whole subject, get well soon bro!

Rookie mistake to "accidently" sew/stitch the drain! .
Make sure you itemize your medical bill so you don't end up paying for the 2nd surgery......... it was the surgeons mistake and they should have to pay for that one not you.

Phantom- you are correct, the "student" doctors stitched the tube in my leg "accidentaly".

I am so glad your on the road to recovery. That sucks you had to have a 2nd surgery though. You've been through a lot, get better and at least they did it on the right leg and not the good one... I think that's what Sharpies were made for.
