I am too old.

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Yep-- after being carded for looking under 40 Saturday night.
This new doctor tells me the procedure he can do for the problem with me knee --- really doesn't do much for people who are 40-45 or older. Really. NOT what I wanted to hear.

What I have wrong with me knee is NOT FIXABLE. YEP. While the pain will eventually get better there are no guarantees that it will go away.
So after being down about all that. I decided while I can not be the best. (never could anyway...) I can emoticon AND STILL BE THE BEST VERSION OF ME THAT I CAN BE!

I wishh I had started blogging about all of my knee issues and thoughts earlier.
I am going to fix that this week. do a couple of bogs with events that happened and my thinking process. I think blogging does help issues become clearer faster and I want to be more consistent with writing what is going on in my life. So I can sort it out more easily.
More on my knee later.

    I have a knee injury too so I just wanted to read your blog and send you some "sympathy". You have a great attitude and will have a long time to be active and fit ahead of you. See another doctor. Even if nothing can be done at this time, you at least deserve a doctor who will listen to you and be understanding.

    All the best!

    There are many options out there!

    emoticon Must be the type of knee injury my dad had knee replacements in late 60's. Maybe get another opinion. My dad is doing great now at 74 with his knees.

    I would maybe consider a second opinion? I know some folks that have had their knees replaced in their 40-50's and it's made a difference for them. Good luck and emoticon in how you are looking at it.

    Totally agree with you about blogging, although it sounds more like rambling on some days. Hang in there! emoticon

    I HAVE HAD BOTH MY KNEES TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENTS. I WAS TOLD I HAD TO WAIT UNTIL I WAS 55 YEARS OLD BEFORE THEY WOULD DO IT. I WAS ONLY 43 AT THE TIME. IT IS WORTH THE WAIT. GET A SECOND OPINION ON WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO TO YOU. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR JOURNEY AND HANG IN THERE.

    My friend had knee issues in her early 20's she had a few surgeries and she is still in pain and she is 42. Doctors have a way of being cold. Look this lady up she is one exception of cold doctors. Lissa Rankin is her name.
