I had an ACL, minor surgery or so I thought. I walked into the operating room and got up on the table myself, it was day surgery so I thought wash, no big deal. When I woke up, it felt like somebody had hit me in the leg with a burning 2X4! They were pretty stingy with the painkillers, I almost felt like they thought I was going to get addicted to Oxycontin, as if! They gave me some T3's, those upset my stomach so I didn't even bother taking them. I was in pain for pretty much 3 days. Glad I had the surgery now because my knee is stronger than ever, however that was painful. But, certainly not life-threatening, so no big deal, pain is gone now and everything is good.
