Best Christmas Gift... a New Knee!

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Many of you taking the time to read this blog have read my previous blog about "Where have all the good doctor's gone?" Well it appears that there are still some good doctors around.

After visiting the third ortho doctor (who by the way is on our insurance plan) taking all of the records from previous ortho doctors, hubby got his" New knee' yesterday, a late Christmas gift indeed. At the initial visit to Dr Ed, ( his name has so many syllables and vowels, it still cannot be pronounced) he did not even look at the previous Doctor's records that were sent over, he checked hubby out, moved his knee in such awkward positions that normal knee could not do, that he could actually tell just by examination that he did indeed need a new knee.

Dr. Ed is one of the top doctor's in our area, and specializes in knee surgery, which went very well, by afternoon Jeff was up walking down the halls with a walker, and a little on his own, today he graduates to crutches, then next to a cane. He has been in such pain for the past few years and it is such a blessing to find a doctor who does not care the age of the patient but the condition and actually cares enough to consider quality of life.

Thank you Dr. Ed forJeff's best Christmas gift ever.
