Thank you DatsoonRandy. According to my surgeon it will be about a year to fully heal. I have been in a nursing home for 3 weeks now and will be going home next Friday. I figure that I hopefully will be able to start working on my 520 again.

I have healed up OK but the bone healing is real slow.

I am working on setting up my own website to upload my pictures to so I can fix my build thread pictures.

Any suggestions or help on website would be appreciated.

Thank you Charlie69

I am temporarily using PostImage to host my pictures until I can get my website up and running. I will be repairing all the picture links in time.

Back home from the hospital with a knee left knee. I had surgery yesterday at 10 am and was released from the hospital today at 1 pm. The surgery was a success and I am doing so well with movement that I was able to come home today.

Good luck! My sister had a knee replaced and after proper PT she's doing great.

I am wrenching again, for a short time. Might have to have my lower back fused together. I might have damaged it past the point of being able to wrench. Right now waiting on insurance to decide if they will approve the burning of the nerves. Eat pain pills and go out and wrench until the pain over takes the pain medication.
