    If pain is a problem in recovery, don't go for the nerve block.

    Will that solve feedback problems?
    Hey, good luck and speedy recovery. Just imagine if you didn't play guitar.

    Wish you well. Sounds like a lengthy recovery. Lots of practice time for sure.

    I'll be praying for you. And if I'll be close to you I would haul your Classic 50!

    Praying that all goes well for you tomorrow. I'm currently in rehab from a knee replacement in Jan. Original work on the knee was done in '61, and the current surgeon left in the screw used back then. Now my knee is better than before, and getting better every day. You will come through fine on the other side of healing and rehab.

    I had the exact same surgery on my left tibial plateau. It was a tough recovery for me as I also had a compression fracture of my T-3 and snapped my left clavicle. I got real talented with first a walker, then crutches.

    I was back at work without any assistance(not even a cane) in 11 weeks. My damage was from a motorcycle wreck. It was real painful.

    I was, however, doing a gig 4 weeks after the accident. My band mates took extremely good care of me, as I couldn't put any weight on my left leg. They carried me and my stuff to and from gigs until I could do it myself. They would set up a bar stool and get a pitcher of water for me.
