I've been abit unhappy since yesterday. No, actually, not a bit, a freaking lot. The specialist thinks I need a knee replacement. Not a reconstruction, a bloody replacement with metal and stuff. Maybe I should change my blogname to Robohag or something if I have to. But, the other thing is I am in the medically *too young* basket for a knee replacement and will have to have it done again a few times as I get older, which is not recommended as a general rule.
So, my choices will be hobble around with a cane forever or be out of action for about12 mths and every 15 years [ if I'm lucky] or so have it done again. I have too much lateral movement in my left knee for it to be something easily fixed and apparently my ACL is too far gone he thinks. I have to have another MRI and Xray because PA is also a factor in any surgery.
Wait,every cloud has a silver lining right? I will no longer have to aimlessly wander carparks looking for that elusive spot. I will no longer be the nice young [?] thing who can stand on buses, trains and trams! People will no longer ponder if I am drunk because I fell on my face when walking 5 steps [ Yes, this does happen frequently LOL]. If people get in my way I can smack their ankles with my cane to make them stop. I can use my cane to get people's attention... err, wait, that sounds like I've been watching too much House LOL
I have refused to get a boring old thing, so I'm on the lookout for really cool canes [ walking sticks] I'll also have to have a few different one's so I can accessorise correctly. I mean, really. If I'm going to have to have one, I am gonna be the trendiest. So, my shoe fascination will have to be replaced by a cane fascination ROFLMAO The girls are already divvying up my stilletto's, the little toads.
Speaking of which, I really don't think the eldest is going to make it much further, she's nesting*G*
Well, I am off to start another painting
