A date with Dr. Knee — 3 Comments

  1. With my first total replacement came the restriction I’d always wanted: no downhill skiing. I thanked the surgeon for finally giving me a good excuse.

    Glad your knee is going to be okay. As for the therapy on a knee vs a shoulder: oh yes, yes it can!

  2. I imagine it can, but my knee has never hurt nearly as much as both my shoulders (just as your shoulders were probably in better shape than your knees). When they were both inflamed, breathing caused searing pain that made me faint. I couldn’t even lift my arms. I learned to have a lot of sympathy for athletes with torn rotator cuffs!

    Except for a couple of mild flareups, it hasn’t been bad for years. The flareups remind me of how bad it once was . . .

    I’m looking forward to the PT. I see it as a chance to save what I have, at least for a while.

  3. I liked your description of the X-ray pose. I could really visualize the scene.

    My knee has had flareups, and I’d feel a brief sharp pain when stepping off a curb. No fall was involved and, thankfully, it went away after a few weeks.

    I hope your condition goes away without treatment, too.
