Doctor Appointment…NEW Info

I’m crushed.  After an initial call from the Doctor, I wasn’t supposed to have surgery…now I have a few surgeries planned over the next few months.

To make a long story short, I got the call today that they are going to do a meniscectomy on my left knee.  I’m a little heart broken since this is going to impact my AT Thru Hike preparations as well as some travel plans.

However, I need keep my chin up and be glad I’ll get the knee fixed BEFORE the AT Thru Hike!

I have been worried that my knee pain would become an issue during the Thru Hike.  Since I want to complete the Thru Hike next year, I want to remove any roadblocks that could impact my trek to Destination Katahdin!  So…with this knee surgery, that’s one LESS thing I’ll have to worry about.

I only hope the surgery is successful and doesn’t result in additional pain!  Also, I hope the recovery time is quick to allow me to get back in shape.

For all of you out there having one of those “low points” in your hike…stay positive 🙂  It WILL get better!
