keep doing what you're doing; if it hurts, stop doing it, at least for a bit!
He showed me the MRI slices; the bone bruise on the upper legbone that is still healing, the partially healed extent it started out at; the swelling around the partially damaged MCL ligament that "gave" and started this all; the fluid around the rest of the joint.
He also told me there is arthritis under the kneecap that was aggravated by all of this, but it's not something that needs surgery until much further down the road.
He told me not to start the therapy his assistant had written me the scrip for 12 days ago (was kind of avoiding that 'til I had the MRI results). He said I can go downstairs and start walking on my treadmill when I feel like; if it aches to get off it and let it rest.
They faxed me in a 90 day prescription for the anti-inflammatory, Meloxicam, they started me on the other week.
So that's the health update...time for some late lunch and maybe a nap!
May the week be kind to each of you!
