More surgery yet again....

Well knee has gone to hell after I had my stroke.  Im in alot of pain daily.  I fell back in May and really messed up the plate and screws.  Not only that but one of the screws has gone in too far and coming out the other side of my knee, you can litterally feel the screw under the skin.  Anyway finally got up to a orthopedic surgeon (lost insurance) and Im having surgery this upcoming Weds to take out the hardware and clean up the...

Doing great...still wish it was 72 degrees and dry...
