When the doctor read my MRI this afternoon he saw a tear in the meniscus- confirming what "I expected." But he has altered the approach - leaning toward the "wait and see." He injected the knee - "yikes" - I was able to walk more comfortably when I left his office. A walker helps -there is an extra comfort level with four legs.
I explained that I have been invited to tell at three storytelling festivals coming up. He seemed to hear me and assured me there is time to figure this out and if there is a need to fix it with arthroscopic surgery. "You walk the same day." he says - well, a temporary reprieve from my fear of anesthesia.
Believe me, I have rearranged my list - and sitting is a high priority on every item.
Please send reikki thoughts to this knee.
