John, in case you were a golfer, remember there may be a surgeon lurking around your club, too.
Do all that you can, with the concurrence of the surgeon and the physios, the rest is in the hands of the fates, and we're all wishing you well.

, eh? Good one. ;-)
Sorry you injured yourself. One thing I found out the hard way is not to increase weight or resistance, when you're trying to recover from joint surgery, without the input of a competent physical therapist. Sometimes in our eagerness to try and approach 100% again, we injure ourselves. I am sorry this happened to you. Must be d--ned depressing, too.
Attitude helps a lot with surgeries, and holding on to the fact that your positive thought can help your recovery is really important for you. When you're done grieving over what happened, work
together with the doc and the therapists again. It's what's in the past is done; you have only the present, and hope for the future. Take the best care of your bod that you can.
