Today I went to the surgeon who did my knee. I needed information about why my knee is locking up.
He said my knee is seriously damaged, with severe arthritis and that I should be having a knee replacement surgery -- but he doesn't do them. He said with my weight, they probably won't do knee replacement surgery at this time.
So -- reality check. Right now I have three more weeks of therapy and I need to do as much to stregthen my knee as possible -- then he recommends that I start swimming if possible,to lose some of the weight (instead of walking and damaging the knee further)
So -- what that means is that I need to figure out a way to bug out -- that doesn't involve my cruddy knees.
