MY 31/2 HOUR VISIT AT THE DOCTOR'S FOR 3 MONTH KNEE CHECK UP, ETC.

Monday, June 17, 2013

emoticon First they x-rayed my operated knee. It was perfect.

Then I saw the doctor's assistant and told him my PT had told me my knee was weak and I also had a bad knee that still needed attention,
So back to wait for x-rays again. They x-rayed my hip that I had had replacement on 16 years ago more or less and my knee.

Then I wait again for the doctor's assistant. He said the hip is perfect.

Said the knee will probably have to have total knee replacement.

I am to get a MAKO ct scan. I did not have to do that on the other knee so tomorrow I am going to call and ask if there was something I didn't understand.

I am set up to see the anesthesiologist the 16th of July. I will have time to pay bills and get my stuff organized for my rehab.

The last time the surgery was soon after seeing the anesthesiologist. I figure it might be around the first part of August.

I think I want to go to the same rehab although the food was horrible, the rehab was excellent and that is what counts.

Pray for me that I will be able to walk better with better balance when it is all over.

Thanks.

    Sounds like you had a very full day. Are you going to have to go to the heart doctor to get cleared again?

    Wonderful news, Irene! You are such a good faithful patient . emoticon

The Drs. and rehab people must be thrilled with your determination and good progress. emoticon
So many people do not do as they should and then complain.
I do know it works other ways, too, but glad you have good results and another knee to be good before you know it!

In my thoughts and prayers, as always, Irene. emoticon

    I'm glad all is going well for you and you're going to get your second knee "done". I pray that the second knee surgery and rehab goes as well as the first one did. I still have your phone number to be in contact during rehab.
