Surgery

I am getting knee surgery and I'm in high school. Life is tough!

Life really sucks when you need surgery and your 14. I haven't been able to run for 2 years. And I have had my problem for 3 years. And I am just now getting diagnosed

Am so sorry RRDancer. What type of surgery are you having?

Life is hard in high school, trust me it does get better :)

RR, Yes at your age it does, my son was in middle school and had his first surgery from a bike wreck, they had to repair his groin. The break handle broke off and went into his body just at the bend of the leg, scratching the artery going down the left leg, then a few years later, he had a hernia repaired. You will get through this. I told him both times if he scares me like that again I d wear his fanny out, lol. It might be harder on your parents than it is on you.
