Knee slowing me Down

Sunday, May 20, 2012

I have gotten to love my walking, swimming and other lower body exercises, and really enjoy pushing myself to do more than my goals. I recently went on vacation and half way through the week I got out of my van and realized that I couldn't bare any weight on my right leg. I had an irritated Bakers Cyst and it had caused my leg to swell to almost 3 times it's normal size. I was on my way into a beautiful mansion for a tour when this occured so I promptly went to the nearest Walgreens, bought a cane and went on a later tour. I tried to keep going not letting the pain and mobility issues slow me down but I finally have realized that the only way I will gain mobility is to stay off it for a while. I just hate having to sit with my leg elevated swollowing pills that make me drowsy and not being able to get up and be active. I guess I will have to find less active things to occupy my time for a while, until my knee can recover..... emoticon

    there will be better days for you! I am so sorry to hear that happened to you! One time I went on a cruise, stumbled and particially riped my toe nail off! every step i took blood gushed out of my big toe and at the beach sand caked on it horribly! I took cute shoes to match my dinner dresses but all I could wear was flip flops! 7 days ruined! hubby still mad at me! :(
