Claude – still fighting the knee

Or is it the knee that is fighting me. I still don’t have an appointment for the MRI, but my doctor says that it’s OK to wait and see if it gets on the mend while I’m waiting. Meanwhile I do have physiotherapy session, which are definitely helping me. I am still taking painkillers but then, I don’t believe in suffering, do you? 😉

Like Lynn, I’m trying to reinforce the muscles that sustain the knee, both knees actually, and still walk quite a few steps. But no brisk walking for me. It’s too hard on my knees.
Also, I’ve given up on stairs, which are lethal (at least as far as pain is concern). And when sitting at the computer, I try to remember not to fold my legs under my chair, which is also lethal.
Here goes
