Some of you know I've been struggling with a dodgy knee for a while now, including ending up in the ER on crutches when my Bakers Cyst burst. Well it got better from there, but never good, so I went and saw my doc, who sent me to a orthopedic consultant in the city.
I went and saw him back last October, clutching my x-rays, and after looking at them and examining the knee, he said that the knee was clean, no arthritis, and there was no soft tissue damage, so he diagnosed a strain, told me to rest it. He the offered to inject it, but must of caught the waves of displeasure coming from me, so he grudgingly said he would send me for an MRI if I wanted..........well hell yes I want, before you stick a needle in me. He said he would book me in, but said if it stops hurting before then you can just cancel.
Last week I went for the scan, and get a call yesterday asking me to come in today for the results, well guess what?
The scan shows severe arthritis behind the knee cap and in the joint itself, and I have a torn cartilage, so I have to go see a surgeon and have an operation I'm glad that the OP will improve things a lot, but angry that it's going to be a while probably before I'm going to be fit enough to ride. Even more angry that I was told that it was my fault that it had got so bad, becuase I didn't come in earlier.
OK, moan over, even more incentive to stay on the diet, and work on the physio exercises I was given last time I had knee trouble, other knee....
