and the results are . .

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

Sounds like you have a good plan. You deserve to be pampered. After all, it is almost Valentines Day! I am glad you are doing better.

Glad it is doing better - and you ABSOLUTELY have to milk it...like my mother-in-law and her birthday - she can easily get two weeks out of it! I bet you can get MUCH better with your knee! :o) LOL!

Baby it, baby!!!

I was told once that I was going to need surgery on my knee - - - I babied it - - - and now, 23 years later, I still haven't had that surgery and the knee doesn't even hurt any more.
