    Sorry but after hearing he was back in his office this morning I could help but think that CNS probably insisted on being awake during the entire procedure so he could evaluate the technique of the robot.

    That's the exact same walker my 96 year old Mom has. Coach Saban has good taste!

    CNS is talking a big game; he probably does feel great but a lot just happened inside his leg. Per the video tweet today he has the walker in the office and is using an umbrella (ha) for support. I'm sure he will stick to the plan and let his rehab follow the proper steps. I don't care how stubborn you are, when they detach your femur and your ability to walk properly is at stake you do as you're told.

    Earle, which approach did your surgeon use?

    I heard that Coach Saban’s old hip just signed a 4-star LB recruit.

    Pre-robot, four years ago. I heavily considered a local, but there was one supplement I take which the docs couldn't ascertain the amount of blood thinning it might cause and you can't inject into the spine with that possible problem. Just as well, because I did have to have a unit of blood and that table looks like a torture device anyway...

    Ha Earle, well I'm sure your outcome was awesome. One thing I had no idea of was that they would drill into my other hip to attach the robot! I was definitely a fan of the nerve block they did, which may account for why coach Saban was feeling so good one and two days out. Anyway, it is nothing short of amazing what they can do with that surgery and I am so thankful that I and Coach Saban could just whisk this massive problem away.

    How could you not know the surgeon would drill into your other hip?

    That’s just crazy talk

    Re: Coach Saban's Surgery

    With apologies to those doctors who do these miracles and those who have had the robot surgery prior to CNS, is it possible that the surgery will now be known as "The Nick Saban" a la "Tommy John" ?
