Hi Everyone! I'm going stark raving mad! I've been stuck in my bedroom for the last 2 weeks. You see I fell, twice. The first time I hurt my already hurting left knee. I had a huge bruise on the inside of my knee. That was healing good, with time. Then I fell again. You would think I learned from the first time, but nope! I didn't. At first I didn't feel any ill effects on my right knee. It was popping good though, and making all kinds of noises. My left knee is an orchestra on it's own, and add in the right knee, and they were making beautiful music together!
After about two weeks, my right knee started feeling funny, in a not so "ha ha" sort of way. Than one day I woke up and I couldn't put ANY weight on my knee. It was like my right knee turned into a really over cooked wet noodle, with a LOT of pain.
I went to an Orthopedic Surgeon for him to take a look at it. He was an *&^^&%% (insert which ever dirty word your imagination can come up with.) He literally did not look at my knee, and yelled at me for over 10 minutes about being fat. Wait!! I'm FAT?! OMG I didn't know that! (rolling eyes here) The bastage even said "It would be better if you just starved yourself!" So, to say the least, I'm going to complain to the medical board here in San Diego. Good thing my daughter was with me. Her mouth was open the whole time he was telling me my svelte figure was ideal. Riiighht.
So, almost 3 weeks later, and I am still bed bound, but my pain doc (I swear he causes more pain then helps, but that's another rant) gave me a Toradol injection, that helped only long enough to get me home. I was up all night counting shooting pain, instead of shooting stars. I went to the ER awhile back, and the ER doc thinks that my Meniscus is torn, because of all the pain. Here is the problem, I'm fat, we've established that, but docs don't want to do surgery on me because I'm fat. So what do I do? Stay in pain this whole time? I can't say it any more clearly.. I cannot walk.. At all. I've been on arm crutches this whole time.
Anyone one have any brilliant idea's? I'm almost out of sanity, and my humor is hanging on with 1 small string. I've started doing some exercises in bed, but that's not going to drop the weight fast enough.
Good thing I have my iPad, I usually read everyone's posts. If I didn't have that, I'd would be crazy without a doubt!
