Hope your lucky enough to get the local. I asked for it when they did mine (I wanted to watch...
...I find it interesting), but they put me out.
I've have my right knee done 3 times, and currently have 99% range of motion and strength. It amazes me sometimes how they can do this stuff.
You are in my prayers. My the Lord bless the surgeons hands so you can enjoy the freedom from pain and irritation as I have enjoyed.
