I watched on the monitor the last time the doc cleaned out my knee. Kinda
weird to hear him say "See all those stringy things on the screen, they
ain't supposed to be there, then poof they are gone!!!
Of course this was the same Doc who had done 3 cleanouts before, 1 scope job
to fix a tear, and one major surgery to re-attach my quadriceps muscle
(completely detached at the knee), and told me on this one 'This is the last
time I will have to do this". I asked him 'Why, did you fix it right this
time?", and he replied "No, you've only got about 20% of your cartilage left
in that knee". SMARTA$$ doctors. Though I shouldn't complain, I am on the
30th yr of his "you'll need a knee replacement in 20 years or so" guarantee.

The finger, silly. I wanted to keep the finger, but the doc said no. It
to pathology. He did let me watch both operations, however. Too bad this
in 1972, before the advent of microsurgery.
