I’m looking forward to the time when the word knee won’t appear in my posts, but it’s not likely to happen soon. My MRI is scheduled this coming Friday, and I’m hoping they’ll spot what’s wrong. The following Wednesday, I have an appointment with the doctor who prescribed the MRI and hope that she’ll have useful suggestions. Physical therapy hasn’t helped as far as pain is concerned, and I must say that my other leg is feeling the strain too.
Well, meanwhile, I have added to my strength exercise, and hope it’s doing me good.
