I had surgery on my left knee just over 3 weeks ago. I went in to have the torn meniscus cleaned up, but once the surgeon looked at the inside of my knee decided to do some micro fracturing too. It is a slow heal. I am still on crutches, but am light weight bearing, thank goodness, as I am not good on crutches for non weight bearing. I am still mostly house bound, and unsure of what I should be doing or shouldn't be doing.
I am looking forward to being able to go for a walk outside, or to even go to the grocery store..it is a lesson in patience.
My left knee a few days after my surgery a few weeks ago.
Time is flying, the first week of September has almost passed.
In July I hurt my left knee, I had a MRI last week in the city and saw my family doctor yesterday to get the results. I tore the meniscus in a few places .. boy oh boy .. it sucks to be getting old. Lucky for me there will be an orthopaedic surgeon here next week and he had some cancellations. On Monday morning I will have surgery to repair my left knee again.
This isn't the way I thought I would be spending the last weeks of summer and the beginning of autumn, but I am grateful.
