I have news. Waiting nearly 5 weeks for some kind of something to deal with this pain in my knee I finally have a surgery date. I had the MRI last week and again I was waiting and waiting for a phone call about what the results were and where we needed to go. Finally, 6 days later I called the doc's office to have them tell me that I was supposed to call and set up an appointment, "Didn't they tell you that." NO! So we scheduled the appointment and I went yesterday. Wednesday I was in the worst pain ever and The Hubby was not sympathetic at all complaining that he was tired of me moaning. Uh, really! That aside, I slept badly and waited around all day long for the 3:15 appointment. I arrived at 3:00, checked in and waited. I waited and waited, yet again. At 4:06, my name was called to go into the patient room where I patiently waited and waited. At 4:24, in the door walked the doctor. A quick yadda-yadda about cartilage bits, swelling, bone irritation (no joke), and arthritis, he sort of suggested that he could clean it out with the arthroscopic surgery and I was yes, yes, let's do it. He did say that a knee replacement might be in my future...ICK! I hobbled back to my car and made the phone calls to friends, kiddo's and then to the hospital to set up pre-op. I'm on! When talking to The Hubby, he wanted to know if it was caused by any one thing like a dance move. I told him no but I should have said YES! He wants to be sure I can dance again I think and for the dancing to not be the culprit. Really, I think it is a lot of factors, dancing, jogging, Jazzercise, age, weight, age.....Sucks getting old I can say. Daddy apologized for giving me the bad arthritic knees that he is blessed with.
