So just got back from the doc.  He ordered up xrays which I got those done today to.  He is pretty confident that I tore my meniscus.  Just not sure how bad.  Still going out this weekend.

That sucks Russ.


Haven't even started this years preparations. Been averaging 75 hours a week since I got back from AZ in July and don't know when I will get laid off :tup:.

Ive had that fixed.  I could still hunt but was just slower getting up and down the mountain.  Flat land didn't give me too many problems.  Takes about a month to get full strength back in the knee after surgery.

Had my right knee done 3 years ago during this time.  Was out late season.

Russ - if you're hunting locally just reach out if you need help with a packout.  I'll be home this weekend.  Don't bust up a bad knee any worse than it is man!

Thanks. I changed directions.  I am not going out this weekend.  Helping out with comms on the Norse Peak, American and Sawmill fires.

Due to my knee issues I didn't get out for early archery.  Got all the MRI's done and saw the doc yesterday.  Doc pretty much said I got some unusually stuff going on.  No tears or ligaments or cartilage.  :IBCOOL:  The bad stuff build up on my femur at the knee joint, bone or calicium unknown, swollen bersa sack, knee cap is chewed up, arthritis and fluid on the knee.  Have to see ortho next.  Doc explained tht it the same type injury to football and basketball players when the take a big blow to the knee.  Also said old injury.   :dunno:  Don't know when it happened.  Got me me on some drugs that takes care of the swelling and pain.  So anyway back to elk hunting went out this morning for opening ML season.  Well yup I know I have a screwed up knee.  Wow in some pain right now but I am not going to let this multi season elk tag go to waste.  Going to soldier on.
