Bad Knees and May Need Surgery Down the Line

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

I went to my doctor this morning and the ligament that runs down the outside of my right knee is pulled. I have had my second steroid shot and the morning I will start my third round of steroids pills. I have a lot of arthritis in both knee caps and it makes it very hard to even walk. I will be exercising my upper body as much as I can for the rest of the challenge.

I have been cancer free for 2 years and I am caretaker for my husband, but I won't let this get me down.

Keep on keeping on!!

    Knee replacement has improved dramatically over the last 10 years! Mine were replaced 12 years ago and my wife had one replaced last year. She was 68 and had no problems. PT was painful at first but she did it and can run now.

    Does it help to wear compression sleeves on your knees to provide some relief. Remember- RICE-- rest, ice, compression, elevate. Take time to be a caretaker for you. emoticon
