    Agreed...but isn't that always the issue???

    No, behind the loge is the club section... where I'm sitting. So, if you happen to stand up and block my view, I'm gonna whack you in the head with Murray's sling.
    Not in the corner it isn't...I"m in Loge 9...I bought them from the Garden...not from BU...last minute thing (friends invited us for dinner but they have the flu so they canceled)

    Also, not a good idea...the sling will probably break...

    Let's move on to the Garden! By the way, my seats are in the last row of the loge, so the only people I'll be blocking are the ones in the concourse behind me walking around.

    it's actually been this way most years since I got to BU for HE. students got the top 8-10 rows, and other season ticket holders got the bottom part. spread out to 314, 313, etc. if you need, you know no one else will be there anyways, those corner seats are always empty.

    What's a little scary though is the wide range of opinions on this from the doctors themselves. Apparently you really have to do your research!
    Where does he live?

    cobbled together from some mastodon bones and lubricated with whale oil? I've heard of that prototype.

    Serious question...I have a friend who is in his 40s. He was told that he was "too young" to have a knee replacement because they don't last more than 10-15 years and you can only do it once.

    Is this an outdated philosophy??
    Yeah, it's outdated. It also doesn't make any sense if your knee is really a mess. My knee wouldn't bend and I had a real hard time getting around and the pain was incredible. When they ask you about rating your pain from 1-10, I know have a firm idea what a 10 is.

    I had my right knee done 3 1/2 years ago at age 42. The first guy I saw said he wouldn't do it and I should wait. I then moved directly to a second opinion and the guy took one look and said: Let's get you on the surgical schedule. He said when it wears out, we'll just do it again. He looked at my left knee x-rays and told me that that one would be ready in 3-4 years and here I am, right on schedule. I unfortunately am going to a different guy this time since my first one is no longer available.

    As the Pro said, find a new guy and one who specializes in them and does a lot of them. The new guy I am going to see does 6-7 surgeries a week, either knees or hips.

    I would highly recommend to your friend to do it if he is having a lot of pain and decrease in quality of life. I admit it is a major surgery and there is a good amount of rehab time (I was out of work for 6 weeks) but it is unbelievable the difference it can make in your life. I can't wait to get the other one done and then be fully mobile again for the first time in the 6 or so years since I first started having real problems with my right one.

    One advantage of doing it at a younger age is that normally you can skip the stay in the Rehab after surgery and recover at home. They have a physical therapist that will come in for like 3 weeks along with visiting nurses to check your bloodwork since you are on thinners to prevent blood clots. At 3 weeks you are ready to travel for your physical therapy.

    It can get a bit boring during recovery since you do a lot of laying around, either elevating to drain swelling or in the knee "machine" which bends your knee to help get averything stretched out. I was lucky last time with my surgery happening to coincide with the start of Summer Olympics. This year I am planning for it to coincide. There may be no hockey, but I have found that water polo is very entertaining of the pain meds.

    If your friend wants to talk to anyone who has been through, I would be more than happy to fill him on my experiences.

    I would think that the guys are focusing on the task at hand. If you can't stay on task at this point in the year, you don't deserve to be here.
