I had an appointment with the doctor yesterday to have him check my knee. I experienced very good results from the shot and medication (both just for inflammation). He actually released me! He said that I inevitably would be having surgery due to the damaged cartilage. He told me to "baby" the knee -- no kneeling (Oh well, I didn't like to kneel to pray anyway - prefer sitting or standing.) or squating, blah, blah, blah. I can still exercise as long as it doesn't hurt. I was very thrilled and thankful!
Hmmm. . . can you imagine how much mileage I might be able to get out of this "baby the knee" thing ?!! :0
