On Halloween night I had a scheduled follow up appointment with the surgeon who operated on my right knee in July. Two weeks earlier I hurt my left knee at my physio appointment. My family doctor sent a note to the surgeon to examine my left knee. Turns out, I torn the meniscus in it to. Lucky for me, the surgeon had a cancellation here in Terrace and fit me in. I had surgery last Tuesday.
I am still hobbling about, still housebound, actually still trapped on the main floor of our house, I am not yet doing stairs. This is the first day I actually feel human again. Yay my knee is healing!!!
Dr. Porter did say that the injuries in both knees were from degeneration and I do have a bigger issue, arthritis in both knees. I will never walk for fitness again, and will only go for short strolls. What a dismal thing to say, truly I am not that old, only at midlife. I will have to figure this out once my knee heals. I will deal with the arthritis and find a way that I can get some exercise.
Life does go on!
