I've been taking a lot of pain pills for my knee. So, I decided to cut back by half the prescribed dosage. I did this a week ago. The first couple of days, no problem. From the third day on I felt better that I wasn't tired all the time, or hungry. But the pain came back with every step I took. I still stayed on half dosage. I'm putting myself back on full dosage tomorrow.
I'm still doing exercises for my quads and hamstrings. As early as I can get in to see the Orthopedic surgeon is in two weeks. I'm hoping that I still have options left other than replacement.
I now have a hand-carved camel head cane. I've been posting pictures of my cane in different situations on Facebook. A bit different, but it is fun creating the situations and coming up with the not so serious captions. I seem to be entertaining a few FB folks.
