OT--time for a new knee
Well ladies...it's finally happened. My DH has finally worn me out!! Not really. I've had terrible degenerative arthritis for years and had knee surgery a few years ago. I've lived with the pain for so long, I've gotten used to it. But around Thanksgiving, my knee took a turn for the worse and it was just unbearable. Went to the doctor and they took xrays. He wanted to know why I hadn't been in sooner considering my knee has no cartilage left and I've worn the bone away. So, he put a shot of cortisone in and that has helped me for the past few weeks. But, the only option left is a total knee replacement...which will happen on January 29th. I'm a bit anxious, but I also know that I am looking forward to being able to walk without being in misery. So....off I'll go. I will be off from work for 6-8 weeks, but I'm lucky enough to be able to do a lot from home. Just wanted to share my plight with you ladies and ask for prayers for my surgeon and for me for a good recovery.
Thanks for sharing and listening!
