Uncle Mush on extended Leave of Absence

Good evening esteemed MR2 Spyder/Roadster colleagues . . .

I haven't been able to drive the Spyder much or for very long for several months due to a worsening knee that tomorrow (September 10, 2020) will be replaced with metal and plastic.  I just wanted to check in with y'all and let you know I will be out of commission for a bit, recuperating from knee replacement surgery.  Never having been through anything like this before, I have no idea how long I will be off.  That said, for all I know I'll be back online looking at the forum by Friday.  One can hope.

Take care.  Stay safe, and if you have the mindset to do so, drive a mile or two in your 2 for me.  🙂

I'll be in touch.

Thanks.

Best of luck with the modification Uncle Mush! You'll come out of it more reliable.

You’ll be on the road in no time.   Do I need to loan you an SMT?

I make Amateur Armrests - see the Commercial Forum. I also have SMT repair seals available.

Make sure the new one has a grease zert. I don't trust these new fangled sealed bearings.One shot of grease every couple hundred miles and the new one should outlast the chassis. Hope you heal quickly and the new and improved one works better than advertised. The new ones keep getting better and materials are improved every year.

Good luck, UM. I have a few modifications too, have no fear. Thats a common procedure, and always being researched and updated. You'll be on the road again very soon.

Hope all has gone well, and I hope you splurged on an OEM replacement. Good luck with the recovery, just remember that once the swelling goes down pushing a clutch pedal is basically additional physical therapy 😉

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.   I'm back home now.   My surgeon said the operation went really well and my knee "was a mess", which certainly explains the symptoms I was experiencing.  The anesthesia I was given has helped to mediate the post operative pain, but 36 hours later it is starting to wear off and I am starting to experience some pain even with the oral pain med -- which is to be expected. So far tolerable.  I'm doing the assigned post-op exercises and ice therapy multiple times per day.  Never been through this before, so it's a new experience I'm taking one day at a time and will just have to walk through.

Thanks again to this small but wonderful community.   I appreciate y'all.

I had my left knee done a few years ago.  I know how it is with the pain meds.. "just give it to me!"  LOL.  Best wishes on your recovery.

Thanks,  y'all.  Now that the pain meds are kicking in I've got a broken motivator (insert Dev's R2D2 video).  OMG!  I am not used to this low level of energy.  That said,  at 8:15 pm, I'm going to bed.   

Thanks again. I'll check in tomorrow at some point.   G'night y'all.
