I went to an ortho doctor wendesday because my right knee keeps swelling for the past six weeks or so. So he did an xray. I put most of my weight on my right leg protecting my left leg from so much pain everyday from standing 3/4 of the day at work. It swells it up really good. He said the xray looks like a torn meniscus so I had an MRI this morning. So now I get to wait at least through the weekend. Blaaa..
I know why it keeps swelling. I favor and protect my left leg as it causes a lot of pain from lumbar stenosis.
Does this make any sense?
So now I'm using my left leg a little more and that causes some kind of aweful spasms. I called out from work last week because I could barely put any weight on my leg. So I stuffed pillows ice more ice, cold pack on my leg and hot pad on my back and a blanket over me. I looked like a penguin in the desert
I absolutely hate the wait time for results on anything. Ask my husband. I'm so thankful for him. He's always helping me. Now I just need to talk him into the recliner I melted into at Sams the other day.
Heck of a week.
