View Full Version : Cindy Evans going in for Surgery

11-21-2013, 05:03 PM
Just a heads up, I'm going in for surgery first thing tomorrow (Nov. 22) for my knee.

For those who don't know, the week after Breyerfest, I was kicked at work by one of the horses (White Prince, the white Thoroughbred, he got scared of a piece of paper in my hand and completely flipped out in the stall). This, in addition to two GIANT bruises/hematomas on both knees, dislocated my left knee/lower leg, tearing up every tendon and ligament in the knee.

After being laid up waiting for swelling to go down, I started physical therapy to regain muscle and mobility. Finally I was cleared for work (to do the last 3 weeks of the season) and schedule my surgery. And finally... that surgery is tomorrow so they an repair my tendons for a more stable knee. I'll be offline until at least Saturday (not even going to bring my phone since it's a valuable one now that my dad got me for Christmas when he changed service providers... if it had been my old flip phone, I know no one would try to swipe it, lol!) so if anyone's looking for me... that's where I'll be. Hopefully I won't be hurting too much or be too loopy so I can get back to "Work" on the models by Sunday.

Thank you for the update Stacy!

I'm alive!

I am now home laid up in bed with a dog glued to my side. They sent me home with a continuous motion machine to keep my knee flexible, I use it two hours on, two hours off for the next three weeks, so needless to say I am most definitely stuck at home and not able to do much. I'm in some pain as the nerve block wore off but I'm doing my best to tough it out with the meds. Thank you all for the well wishes!

Glad to hear it's over and you are home. Sounds like your dog is happy to see you too. I hope you feel better soon and can get back to normal as soon as possible. :hugg

Feel better soon! :hugg

Take care of yourself and I hope this heals quickly! :hugg

Hoping for a speedy recovery and hope you feel much better soon! :hugg

I know it will take time but hoping the pain will very soon be just a memory! Best wishes for a quick recovery! :hugg

yikes! glad you made it home, and best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Happy healing vibes coming your way! Sounds like what happened to my right knee...

11-27-2013, 07:04 AM
Thanks all, I may need more vibes as I keep fighting off low-grade fevers.... body is hard at work healing and staving off possible infections. Got a Dr.'s appointment today to check up on me. Still in lots of pain on occasion but trying like hell to reduce my intake of Percocet already (nothing clogs you up more...) I tried working on models yesterday but unless I'm in bed with my leg *UP* I can't sit there for long before I'm too uncomfortable.

Still trying to figure out how I'm going to do rent this month, I wouldn't mind if people checked out my stuff on MH$P (same old stuff's been sitting there forever) (sorry if that's inappropriate to ask here, mods can delete this paragraph if you wish but I'm getting kinda desperate)

Hope you get well soon Cindy!
