I have OCD… not the one you’re thinking

This one required some knee surgery.  Have a look…

OCD stands for Osteochondritis Dissecans 1.  It’s a developmental bone lesion.  Mine was right on top of the femur and the lesion broke free from the bone back in July when Sarah and I were packing up our moving truck.

So basically, I’ve had a little junk of bone floating around in my knee for the past few months.  By “little”, I mean it was about 1.5cm (roughly the size of a dime!).  And the lesion turned out to be 14mm.

Below there are some photos taken from the scope surgery, including the fragments removed.  Ouch!

  1. Wow, great pictures!  It’s clear to me that “IMG_1682.JPG” was pre-Percoset and “Rob’s too chipper” was after…  It’s a good thing they proved that they actually removed something from your knee, since the diagnosis of OCD “requires a high index of suspicion.”  But seriously, get better soon- I need to get back to beating you at raqcuetball…

  2. I have the same thing but they cant do anything about my knee until im older i got the bad knees from my mom i stil have about 7 years of waiting untill they can do anything about it because im not done growing
