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....

What type of compartment syndrome is it?

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.
