Evening all - well I went to the hospital and I am now a little deflated as they told me what the surgeon had done to my knee! Basically the problem is behind my kneecap - on a scale of 0 - 4 with 4 being severe - mine was severe and the wear and tear was that bad that it has eroded everything to the bone, which now explains why I was having the problems I was having. So they have cut and snipped and tidied it up and given it a clean, but I've been told that I have to be really careful now.
In respect of stairs, 2 flights is my maximum at anyone time and stairs will now always be a problem, in relation to exercise, I am not to squat and walking, bike riding or cross trainer has to be low impact and should I experience any shooting pains or I get any pain I am to stop immediately and rest and if necessary take anti-inflamatory tablets!! So basically my leg is "vintage" as he called it and I'm still relatively young (if you can call 40 young LOL) and is totally knackered. I am to get in touch straight away should it get worse in the future. He also told me this is why my recovery was a slow one, because of what they had done. It could take up to 3 months before I get full movement back. So obviously this appointment cheered me up no end NOT!
Anyways onto a lighter note - here's a card I made earlier today.
