I'm being incarcerated!!!
Yep, for 3 days or so in the hospital. I'm having a knee replacement. I'm going to be cuffed to a machine that moves my new bionic robo-knee (trademark Dath Max). Physical therapists have promised me I will not escape torture. Hope I get a nice nurse for a warden.

Sabretooth 07-22-2010 08:44 AM

Yes, that's- correct, that'll be eight sticks of dynamite, three AK-47s, one Dragnuov, one GPS and one bag of crispies and double ammo for all. How much is that? Hold on for a second, phone-

What? In the ****ing hospital?! You mean not in a hot women's prison full of lusting B-movie actresses? Oh lawd.

I'll take the crispies. Here's the cash. Bye.

Soooo wait... they're turning her into a borg...

I was planning on helping break her out, but it would take 3 days to assemble materials and my team. and another to get us in position. I mean we'd have to get intel, schematics, guard schedule, oh and knowing exactly WHERE she was would help... BUT I guess she wouldn't want to wait 4 days to get rescued from a 3 day incarceration.

Alkonium 07-22-2010 09:04 AM

Yeah, I was about to say, you don't seem like the sort who'd do something illiegal ... and get caught. Or the type to get arrested ... and deserve it. Get well soon anyway.

Trench 07-22-2010 09:23 AM

We can rebuild her... We have the technology... :cyb1:

So. Jae Onasi's finally being assimilated. Knew it had to happen sooner or later. Resistance is futile. :cyb3:

Get well soon forum Momerator; and God's speed.

Signing off... *static*

About time. :xp:

Totenkopf 07-22-2010 10:14 AM

Wow......and I've been accused of misleading thread titles. :p Well, speedy recovery.

RC-1162 07-22-2010 11:08 AM

Get well soon! And watch out for the Repo Men. :p

Ztalker 07-22-2010 12:08 PM

Faster, Stronger, Better....

Seriously though, good luck Jae. And don't give men a knee in the groin hurts with a normal knee, but with a metal one...brrr.

Darth Jae it is. ;)

Boba Rhett 07-22-2010 12:43 PM

This is going to be a great thing for you, Jae. Here's to a speedy recovery so you can get to enjoying your robo-knee. :)

Are you planning on fighting crime afterwords?

Qui-Gon Glenn 07-22-2010 01:58 PM

One of my college buddies and best friends had a total knee replacement about a year ago... now he has the exact same RoM in the bionic knee as the other normal knee, and has almost zero pain, which to him is a whole new world, as he had suffered through constant pain for more than a decade... thinking he was too young to get a knee replacement.

When your stuff is jacked up, ya gotta take care of it! Good for you Jae!

Since his knee, he has lost 40lbs and looks like my old friend, not Jabba the kneeless.

purifier 07-22-2010 03:12 PM

WATCH OUT FELLAS! She will now have the ability to superkick sombody's ass!

Hence another reason for the title of...... "MOMERATOR".

Here's wishing you the best on your operation Jae. ;) Get well soon.

Darth Avlectus 07-22-2010 04:53 PM

Congrats on the new knee. However, I am of the impression these knee joints are not for running and major climbing. (Doctor friend of mine who attends to athletes doing this very thing.)

Do NOT let the recovery therapist tweak you too hard, be hyper-aware (especially if s/he is a gorilla body type) and give a definitive 'OK ENOUGH' when approaching bending threshold of your knee. Try to avoid the forceful or insistent ones if you can.

Congrats on your new joint.

Tysyacha 07-22-2010 04:56 PM

I actually thought you were going to jail, Jae! I was like, "ZOMG for WHAT?!?"

Congratulations on fooling me--and on your new knee. Speedy recovery, "Momerator"! :)

Litofsky 07-22-2010 07:17 PM

Best wishes, Jae! Get out of there and back to us soon.

jrrtoken 07-22-2010 07:20 PM

Be sure to ask about sticky actuators; it's a serious issue. Oh, and skull gun.

On a serious note... get well soon? :p

Q 07-22-2010 08:34 PM

Well, you said quite a while back that your knee had little or no cartilage left, so I guess that this was always a possibility. At least you'll finally be able to move around like you used to. PT's gonna be a bitch, though. :(

Good luck.

Astrotoy7 07-23-2010 12:55 AM

As LFNS Resident Physical Therapist, I can concur - CPMs are great administer :D

For those that haven't seen a Continuous Passive Motion Rig, they look like this.

They move the knee continuously for hours on end to stimulate healing and maintain optimal length-tension of any intact connective structures/musculature. This is done of course in addition to the actual physical work of rehab exercise and hydrotherapy.

One bit of advice... try remember to wear some underwear under your gown, once you're out of recovery. The amount of times I had to haul a knee onto a CPM and got an eyeful of furry mayhem is well into the thousands........

Good Luck Jae!

May you escape as much pain as possible during this process! :cheers:

Jae Onasi 07-26-2010 12:31 AM

I have escaped! I got out yesterday late afternoon (about 48 hours post-op), so not too bad. The nurse-wardens were fantastic, and incredibly knowledgeable. Even the PTs were kind-hearted. They worked me, but they were nice about it. I hope the home rehab people are just as nice.

For the PTs and other medical types in the audience, my PROM day 1 was 74 degrees and on discharge day was 86 degrees! Everyone seemed quite happy about that. I just got the CPM in the house, and I had it on a good 8 hours today. I could only get to about 30 degrees today since I didn't have it for most of the day yesterday. I'd gotten up to about 60 degrees on it in the hospital. The machine is actually comfortable for the most part, and since it elevates the leg, it helps with the swelling, too.

@Astro--I have shorts on. :D In the hospital, I had a foley and a femoral pain catheter, so underwear wasn't an option. Happily, both of those are now D/C'd. At home rehab these next 2 weeks, and then at outpatient rehab after that, though, shorts will help lots in preventing unbidden views of 'shrubbery'. :lol:

Astrotoy7 07-27-2010 10:00 AM

Good to hear things are goinhg well Jae! 86degrees 2 days post is golden standard stuff - so you should give your surgeon a proper pat on the back :)

Keep that knee movin' !(active and passive)


Prime 07-27-2010 07:19 PM

Have you thought about becoming a cop? :)

Glad to hear you are on the mend...

Char Ell 07-29-2010 09:49 AM

Happy to see you're well on the way to recovery Jae. Hopefully the long term benefits will make the short term pain and suffering worth it. :)

Ray Jones 07-29-2010 06:26 PM

Great to hear you're well, Jae! :)

True_Avery 07-29-2010 09:20 PM

Happy drug fueled daze day!

Jae Onasi 08-03-2010 07:49 PM

Physical therapy--the most un-fun thing I've ever done medically since hard labor. However, I'm now up to 95 degrees. I have to catch my breath after he flexes it that hard because it's a new adventure in exquisite pain when he bends it that much, but we're slowly getting there.

I was able to walk around on 1 crutch today, so I might be able to get off the walker soon. :)
