    Default Surgery

    Well I had surgery yesterday for my compartment syndrome in both legs. I got home last night and its pretty painful. I need to stay immobile all the time, can't use me legs. Be limited to the bed for a week about and then crutches for 6-8 weeks. 3 months before I can do anything athletic.

    Just thought I'd tell you guys how it went. MSG wished me luck.

    Pain isn't too bad as I'm on Vicodin...Got high as **** last night....

    Bilateral chronic compartment syndrome of the legs. Anterior, perhaps?

    It just did. My legs had been bothering me for years and it took multiple doctors before I could get a diagnosis that wasn't , "Never heard of that kinda pain."

    Doc did the tests and sure enough, compartment syndrome. Average person gets about a 30 on the scale after exercise, i was over 100 on a good day.

    Probably caused by either too much running and jumping, or my growth.
