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?
