I can’t say that my knee is getting better. In fact, the only moments when it doesn’t hurt is on the elliptical machine. I can’t walk fast as it is really painful, and slowly is also painful although different. Moan, whine, whimper and the likes 😦
I am really grateful for painkillers and am starting to understand Dr House LOL No, not really. I only take one in the morning, where I used to take 6 a day but I really can’t function if I don’t take it. Both the doctor and the physiotherapist have mentioned arthroscopy as something wrong with the meniscus is suspected. I think they’re trying to get me used to the idea Yuk!
Only the MRI will tell, and that is still a couple of weeks away.
Meanwhile, I do try to reinforce my thigh muscles, whatever you call them. It’ll always be handy, if I have to go through the darn thing.
Have a look at his knees. Just what I couldn’t possibly do these days
Taken last year in Udaipur, India
