Years ago, dievca’s Mom had rotator cuff surgery. The surgeon came out and said that it was much worse than he expected. Basically, he didn’t recognize her pain was legitimate when Mom stated it.
Once upon a time, dievca was an elite athlete. Her sense of pain or toleration of pain is skewed. Sometimes, she can’t judge if something is really bad because she’s pushed through the pain for so long. When she went to the orthopedic surgeon dievca was glad that her knee locked up on the examination table – it proved she wasn’t a lunatic.
Apparently, when the surgeon got into her knee to remove the bone chips, he got more than he bargained for with the osteoarthritis of the knee cap and took the extra time to clean it up.
So, was dievca like her Mother and her pain wasn’t taken seriously? Or has dievca been pushing through and couldn’t state her pain clearly because she might have read it wrong?
Anyways, dievca had a good night. she’s taking the meds as directed – not desperate for them at all. Her leg can straighten, bend and take weight, the pain is in the quad more than the knee at this point.
Master asked her how she felt about the surgery – and she answered, “hopeful”.
OK, enough! dievca’s Mom always said its boring for other people to listen to your ailments~
Let’s switch – How are you?

dievca got home from Europe and her knee was paining her quite a bit. A long Passport line (where a gentleman dropped with a seizure) and a heavy backpack/luggage didn’t help. Today, she caught up with Master, did her PT and has been stretching her legs to the best of her ability – it doesn’t really matter, the knee surgery is tomorrow. Please wish her luck! XO
