Moving up a timeline – knee

back-tattoos-for-women-4During COVID, dievca had a three-month period where she was able to rehab her back.  Selfishly, it was one of the best things to happen to her regarding her health.  she didn’t/doesn’t want a relapse of COVID or another virus in any way, but it might give her time to work on her knee, she needs it.

Last week, dievca had scheduled appointments for two Orthopedic Doctors. to look at her knee – one appointment is this Thursday and one in June.   Her schedule blew up when her knee popped going up the 3rd flight of stairs from the Subway yesterday. she was stuck for a period of time trying to figure out how to get up the final 2 stairs. Finally, she slowly made it out of the subway and into a cab. The Cabbie got her to an UrgentCare and was super patient and kind – sometimes you gotta love NYC.

The area popped again (lightly) when the Dr. palpitated the area. Yes, there is chronic swelling at the meniscus (livable), the knee cap may have chips (that needs an x-ray – but not the main issue), etc. dievca knows the damage has been building for a while due to past foot/calf injuries + aging.

Anyways, dievca scheduled another group to look at the knee Monday 8am, to get “The Party” started.  she has the crutches and ace bandages — the pain has receded to certain positions and angles which gives her more information for the next set of Doctors.

The Uber home included a lovely, patient driver. Again, you’ve gotta love NYC.

If you are thinking – where was dievca’s Master?  He was the first call of the morning to talk about the Doctor who is scheduled for Thursday.  Then after the pop, He spoke with dievca in the cab and said he would come down immediately – but it wasn’t necessary when dievca knew He had family coming in town to stay.

dievca just wishes she could have made it to Thursday without the pain and loss of mobility.
