Knee Update

Good news - it's not a torn meniscus. No surgery!! The orthopedic surgeon said that I have Chondromalacia, which is why the brace and prednisone made most of the pain go away. If it starts up again, he'll give me a cortisone shot and possibly a shot of lubricant in my knee. It still aches in the evening, but it's nothing that ibuprofen can't handle.

Hooray!!

HORRAY!! I don't have to have surgery either!! I am so glad to hear you don't! I am working hard to get my knee to straighten! It is hard work. But I am making progress! I hope your knee continues to feel better!
