Knees & Cabin

Friday, June 30, 2017

I saw my orthropaedic doctor this morning. In the last 6 1/2 months I have fallen on my left knee three times. I had an monovisc injection 3 months ago. It did not help. My doctor ordered a MRI which I will get next week. He said from that we will be able to know what treatment to do. Both involve surgery either arthroscope or knee replacement. I am hoping for the lesser!

This weekend we are going up to my family's cabins in Red Feather Lakes. I am looking forward to getting away and just relaxing! The fireworks over the lake is fantastic. We have front row seating as our cabin is lakeside.

Tomorrow starts the 5% challenge and even though I will start it on vacation, I am going to do my best to be careful and start strong.

    Praying for the MRI to show less damage so surgery can repair. Sounds like a great way to spend the 4th!

    Sure are a lot of knee issues in our group. I'm sorry you're looking at surgery but hope you get it fixed and pain free soon. Enjoy your weekend away!

    Hope your knee gets better with some rest while you are vacationing and the MRI will show it is not as bad as you may fear. Have fun at the lake and enjoy the fireworks.
