"Does this hurt?" my orthopedic surgeon asked as he jammed the 'Thumb of Pain' in my knee.
"No...no..no..not there either....hot damn!"
Saturday morning I found I couldn't walk downstairs without pain in my right knee. Tuesday morning I had an emergency appointment with my ortho.
I have a compression fracture of the knee, probably from my faceplant last week. This is what I get for wearing slimline kneepads for kids that weigh about 60 lbs.
The interesting thing is my ortho said , "I've never seen a fracture there. I don't even know how that can happen."
It's small, and getting better quick.
I can skate but....
The doctor also said 'don't fall'.
I said, "Figure skater...." in that insufferable way, but I agreed to wear double adult knee pads until the knee completely heals.
Well, it's not important. This weekend it's going to be like this around here:
Oh no! I can't believe you have a fracture! Take care of yourself and rest up!ReplyDelete
Ouch, that is a major bummer. Time for rest and relaxation. Hope the fracture heals quickly!ReplyDelete
Man, that really bites!!! Get better soon. And I'm hoping for NO snow over the weekend.ReplyDelete
Skatingsafe, here we come. I'm going to order my daughter some knee pads from them since Se_Ku has stopped making the d3o pads.ReplyDelete
