I went for the MRI last Friday and haven’t had a full report yet. I will have to pick it up this coming Wednesday, but the doctor said that my meniscus has a small tear and that there’s some sort of thing that swims around, from what I understood. He said that there are two ways of handling it, the first way being to do nothing and hope it’ll fix itself, and the second to go through arthroscopic surgery.
I will have to see the specialist who prescribed the MRI to see what she says, and that’s next week Wednesday.
I honestly don’t know how long one would have to wait until anything fixes itself. It’s already been almost three months… But we’ll see what happens next week.
Meanwhile, I go on taking painkillers and exercising.
I’ve taken to walking at home, sans Leslie Sansone, since the weather is pretty awful and it keeps me from trying to walk too fast and hurt my knee. I’d say it’s better than nothing!
