Prior to this happening has been stiff for a few months now thought it was just catching up with me due to plumbing and drain work etc. Thanks again boys for the support
    I had a meniscus tear, the docs, did arthroscopic surgery, was down hard for about 4 days then against medical advice I was working again. This happened when I was 19, so the recovery process was probably quicker, but I have had no long term problems associated with my knee yet. (honestly I cant even figure out what knee I had the work done on). Anyway the surgery was a breeze and only took around 30 minutes. So try not to worry too much about that part of it.
    Quality service is not expensive, it is priceless.

    I go tomorrow for the MRI. I do not think the out come wil be that bad, I'm walking a lot better in the last few days, I'm down but not out! I think it's not my acl form the research I have done and the info I got on this site from what some of you had told me if it was the acl I would be laid up a lot longer. So I'm very hopeful, and truth, no matter what, I got to get back swinging I have family to feed so I'm ready to go.

    Thanks again for the support!

    Sounds like it won't be to bad if it were your ACL you would not be walking.
    Good luck speedy recovery.

    I have a self employed buddy (plumber with a handyman business) that helps me out every now and then. I also help him if he needs more manpower. We're both nursing backs so if one has a 50+ gallon w/h, we'll usually make some room in the day to help the other out. I also have a pretty healthy relationship with a few other local plumbers that I could probably call but haven't yet. Do you have a buddy that's qualified but not busy that could ride along with you while you heal? We gotta help each other out in this business and I'd probably have lost a few customers if I hadn't had help. I know the anxious feeling when you get hurt, knowing it's all on your to bring in the cheese. Good luck with your knee man.

    Thank you, I had the MRI today I was told my doc get the results in tree days lol... I'm feeling a lot better very stiff a little pain now and then though I can't fully bend we all know that we need that to happen in this bizz. Well, I have a call in the am and another for sat, so time to bust out the ace bandage and some duct tape and the key to this, my 22 year old helper and get back to work! Thanks again boys for all the props!
