Well, I went to see another ortho for a second opinion, glad I did. After discussing the options I decided to opt for cleaning out the knee, the sooner the better. It will be removing cushion, but cushion that is no longer functioning well. I do have arthritis in my knees, more than the other doctor reported. Swimming is still cool as well as walking. So, scheduled the surgery for March 1st.
Last night I tripped and fell...one of those "oh crap" moments. Landed on my back, messed up the left leg even more. Luckily the pain in the back of my knee now offsets the pain in the front. I'm not going back to the doctor yet, I was just there...ice and heat for now, and I am buying stock in Tylenol.
I know my weight is aggravating this situation, but I am not going to beat myself up. Just keepin on keepin on...
Hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for the support!
