The most horrible thing that I could think would be the outcome of me going to the ortho doc came true today. Xrays were taken and I sat in a small room for 10 minutes before he finally came in. After poking and prodding; asking many questions about
my back pain and looking over the xray, he tells me that he doesn't see anything on the surface. But that doesn't mean I am not in pain. He asks if he can do a steriod shot to my knee and I gladly accept (now this is strange for me because I hate needles and will try to talk the doc out of it. But today I was in some serious pain that felt like I was going loose control of my emotions from.) and he wants to start PT as soon as possible for four weeks.
Then I head back for another appt. This one I am not looking forward to. If the PT and shot has not worked, then its off to MRI and whatever that reveals could mean that I am looking at scope on the knee or possibly even a full knee repacement very soon. The truth is, if it comes down to it and that is my only other choice and the pain is still horrible, then I will do what I have to toget back on track and leave this part of my life behind. I won't deny that I'm scarred to death my friends, but I too have a strong will that will get me through this as well.
By the way: gosh I am talented!! I can shut my eyes while typing and actually knew what I have typed as well as no errors.
