Alright. The count down has started. Monday morning I have surgery to replace my right knee ACL.
I had the choice to have my doctor carve up a part of my own body or put a tendon from a cadaver in my knee.
If it comes from me, the benefit is that I know where the part came from. But I greatly extend my rehab time.
If it comes from a cadaver of a generous person, the benefit is that I recover faster. But there is always a very small chance for complications.
I’m going with "Dead Knee Walking" (cadaver). I’m told that in about 12 weeks, my body will replace the donor tendon with all-natural-Tim.
Have you had any similar experiences? Any thoughts on the subject?
