After spending nights worrying about that cyst draining and injection, which may sound ludicrous, for such a small procedure, I decided to ask for second opinion. I figured there was no point doing something that I really didn’t feel to be the right thing for me. I now have two addresses of competent surgeons and am seeing one this Wednesday. I’ll see what he says. Meanwhile, instead of taking 3 painkillers a day (I was waiting for the knee to hurt), I moved on to 4 and am feeling better. The difficulty stretching out my leg is still there, of course, and so is the pain, if I sit for a long time, but it’s more tolerable this way.
The cold has settled in, November and December are definitely not my favourite months, but no one’s giving me a choice so I try to walk on.
