I have had a bad knee for a while. It is bone on bone. Walking is a drag in the literal sense as I tend to drag my leg sometimes. I had an appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon yesterday. I thought he would say knee replacement surgery.
But I was granted a reprieve, sort of, for now. 🙂 lol
Instead it will be 3 injections, one a week for three weeks, to try to stave off said surgery until COVID clears up. As of now hospital beds are filling up with COVID patients in my city.
In the picture is me clowning around a bit when I had an injection in said knee this past June.
Does it sound weird that I am thankful to have injections? Well if it means avoiding surgery, at least for now, I am all for it. 🙂
As the surgeon was looking over my records, he said, “Maybe you should see an Endocrinologist.” My response was, “that might be a good idea.” But inwardly I was thinking more along the lines of, “ugh another specialist.” That is the life of a spoonie living with chronic illness. Life is a line up of appointments with specialists. Yes, I know one should be honest, but hey this guy might be doing a surgery on me in the future. 🙂
I am thankful the first injection will be the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and hopefully it won’t put a damper on my Thanksgiving plans.
So today I am thankful for injections. 🙂 haha
What are you thankful for?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
