So okay in case you are not facebook friend with the duck here is what happened at the docs yesterday:
Ok, good news and bad news from the doctor. Tendon in the knee is only sprained and not torn, so no surgery.......at this time.
We then had this conversation:
Doc: Have you ever abuse steroids in your life?
Me: Ummmmmmmmmmmmm no, do I look like a body builder?
Doc: Well that means you're an alcoholic.
Me: That is a bold statement, what makes you say that?
Doc: Because your knee says you are.
Me: Well I am, been sober for four and a half years.
Doc: Congratulations, but you also have long term damage to your bones from it.
Me: Among other things I would say.
Doc: You have Aseptic Necrosis.
Me: Sounds like some kind of VD.
Doc: I'm not that kind of doctor.
He went on to tell me that I can lose the crutches but keep the knee brace and come back in 6 months for a VD check up, I think I like this guy.
So, good and bad news as he said. I want to hear what Dr. Wacks has to say about it too. He also has to do physical therapy for the six months.
And that's about all I know about that. For now.
Today I shall swim and start packing, ready to leave on Monday. We had lots of storms yesterday, hope today doesn't bring more of them. I was in the ladies card room during all the storms yesterday and when I was ready to leave the sun came out for my walk home. How lovely. Have a great day! I will too.
