Fortunately I will be meeting with the surgeon in 2 weeks and should be able to get a knee replacement in the off season so it won't be as much of issue going forward.

Good luck...I hope it goes well! :)

If it goes as well as my other one did, I will be very happy.

Agganis is giving tickets to students in 315. My friends and I bought from the Garden in 314.

I have Loge seats from BU and mine are in 11. So maybe 314-316? I think that for Hockey East, the school seats are generally along the sides instead of in the corners.

edit: Brassbonanza beat me to it.

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Is this an outdated philosophy??

MacArthur was the Point-Per- Game leader for 3 seasons in a row? Not bad. I think that he doesn't quite get the credit that he deserves for being a very good player. A couple of those teams were pretty good but none made the Frozen Four. Am I mistaken or did he come to BU a year earlier than was originally planned? If so, he should have still been here in 08'-09' if plans hadn't changed. I wonder if he ever thinks about that.

I had my first one at age 47. It came loose after 3 years due to hockey. The second one lasted 12 years and the bottom piece came loose. They replaced that piece last September and I'm ready to play golf. The field is advancing dramatically. Tell him to find a different ortho guy who does 2-3 knees per week.

Good to know...thanks. I can't tell him what to do, but it is helpful if and when it happens to me!

With at least two games to go, Chiasson has a chance to reach the 50 point mark.There was a scoring error on BU's third goal of game 3, so Chiasson is now at 43 points for the season (1.19 ppg) after the correction was made.

Kieran got the Three Stars award. And Alex Privitera is among the rookies who were honored. (He's had a really good second half, even with those missing weeks.)

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.

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.

Yeah, it's outdated.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. :D

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