Saw the Surgeon Today...
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
I don't believe this...
Yes, I do.
ANOTHER FOUR WEEKS!! AAGH!!
I was given options: cortisone injection, which would adversely affect my diabetes, which can cause reactions in some people, and may not work...: a cast for several weeks; another four weeks with the splint; surgery.
Something I didn't know, though: he's more concerned with the arthritic inflammation right now than the ligaments. Apparently, the pain now is all from that, and the surgery he was talking about would be specifically to reduce the arthritis symptoms!
A man from the Center on Aging came over this afternoon and changed my light bulbs. At least I'll be able to SEE the dust bunnies and grunge pirates...! LOL
I'm exhausted. I have an hour before dinner... I think I'll take a NAP...
aka good night... LOL
