went to Orthopedic surgeon today about left knee
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
Went to the doc this morning and had to have 3 injection in and around my left knee. When he did x-rays he found out that not only do I have Rheumatoid around my knee but I also have Osteoarthritis in the left knee under the knee cap that is eating away at the cartalidge and bone in my knee, so I have been down most of the day with the knee propped up. I can still exercise but cannot do any leg positions for several days until the steroids take total effect. So now on a modified program for now. He does want me to keep doing seated yoga 7 days a week so the rest of my joints are slowed on progression of the two arthritis's because he feels if my one knee is this way, I probably have the same in a lot of my joints.
But at least for now I can still get around (albeit slowly) which is better than a lot of people do. But was also reminded to use my mobility scooter when I'm out. So I hope I can still hit my goal on time since my exercise routines are cut way back for now!
