Need an ortho in Arlington

Yesterday was the last straw. I haven't been on the bike in two weeks because of the off an on knee pain and it's just not going away. It hasn't locked up on me in a while, which is obviously good, but the other pains just won't go away any more. Yesterday I had the usual pain behind the knee cap. Blah, whatever, take more advil.

Last night though, while at a friends bbq, I was sitting on the couch and out of nowhere my knee really started hurting. This has happened before but never this bad. It was like every part of my knee plus the ends of my thigh/shin bones were getting stabbed. Front, back, inside, outside, center... all of it. It actually hurt more to have no weight on it than it did to stand or walk Anyway, it had me laid over on the couch clutching my knee, breating heavy, a little sick to my stomach (with people looking at me like I was losing my mind).



Sooooooo... I'll be seeing a doc this week. Anyone have a rec. for a good Ortho in the Arlington area? If not, I'll be going back to Dr. Goodhart in Carrollton.

It probably doesn't really matter, but which one


"Dr. B. J. Mycoskie, the Texas Rangers' medical director..."

"Michael L. Mycoskie: Texas Rangers Baseball Organization, Orthopedic consultant, 1981-1986 and 1999-2003..."

Here is the guy that did my knee surgery, he is really cool and a great doc. Seeing other friends go through similar surgery's I recovered the fastest out of all of them, and have had far less problems. Hell 6 months post op I was ridding a 100K event, 1 year later running better than I have ever in my life.

Heh. Went in for the first visit today and did Xrays... have to go back next week sometime for an MRI. Sounds like I'll have to get it scoped though.


And an incidental finding, I have a bipartite patella on this knee also.

A piece of my right kneecap never fused when I was younger, so there is a bone fragment floating there. I'll scan the xray later if you want to see it.

It can be removed if necessary, but like I told the doc, that's not what brought me into his office so I'm not going to worry about it right now. I just want the other stuff fixed.

Of course I love you guys. The wife wanted to start working out, so I've been taking her to the gym. Hey, she has boobs, you guys don't. It's a no brainer.

If you miss me, you can come to the Saucer in Fort Worth tonight around 9. The wife and I will be there having a couple of birthday beers in my honor.
