After a few days in the hospital, one of our most popular bassists/luthiers/conservatives is home and running his wife Marcia ragged with his needs. The knee replacement was a total success and of course now Bob is left with intense pain and an intense physical therapy program. The problem with this operation as Marcia explained to me, is that all the scar tissue left from the operation, must be stretched with excercise so the tightness from that tissue doesn't leave Bob with a limp or worse. He's also having a problem with the pain medications as far as finding one that gives him some relief, but doesn't mess up his tum-tum. Anyway, he's home and on the mend and i'm sure we'll hear from him soon!
