I shared with everyone at the dr office

Monday, February 11, 2013

i shared with everyone at the dr office how grateful i was for the reminder call. ugh is the word on the shot in the knee though, the brace i think helped keep the pain for the next four hours on the drive away from the dr office. dont go back until august. this is what i will do until i reach an acceptable age for knee replacement and trust me i am not in a hurry no matter how much i dont like the knee shot.

    My mom used to get those shots in the knee. Sounds gruesome but I would feel the same way about the surgery.

    I have heard, though, that once you get the knee replaced and get through the rehab, you'll wonder why you waited so long.

    I had my left knee replaced last year @ age 51, it was the best thing I could have done. Now I can walk, bike and even jog. emoticon

    An acceptable age for replacement is when the pain is too bad. I was in my early 50's when I had the first one but I've heard of much younger people having them because of the deterioration and pain.
