Where Have I Been?

Well, I have been here. Mostly home trying to occupy time. A little bit ago I had X-Rays done on my Knee. After the follow-up appointment put me in a funk. The doctor gave me a list of do’s and don’ts. More don’ts than do’s though. Not happy about it. But it is understandable. She is a great doctor and looking out for my best interests and my health.

So here is the diagnosis. Arthritis. Not Rheumatoid yet. But my RF is still climbing and that will come in time she said. So for now Osteoarthritis is the issue. She said I had it in multiple locations. Bleh! So she banned me from doing my workouts for 6 weeks. I have PT but it seems to be making it worse, that makes me cranky. Not just that but the fact that I have goals I want to meet and these PT exercises are not big calorie burners. Most of them are done seated, not much of a workout. Soon I will be allowed to do some yoga though. I am looking forward to getting to do anything right now.

The point in the PT is to get the joint stronger and more lubricated. Then I go back and see the doctor and she is going to see where things are at pain wise. If they are not satisfactory she will refer me to an Orthopedic specialist and start me on corticosteroid injections in the knee. The way the knee is now that I am going through the PT it is pretty much a given the injections will happen. I am ready to get them. I have enough pain from the Fybromyalgia and Raynaud’s disease.

All I know is I am ready to get back to “real”, more productive workouts. I want to see results. I don’t want to sit around on my ass all day when I would rather get in some Pump or jog or even power walk. In due time though. Patience is key and pushing it and possible opening myself up to further injury is not a worth risk taking.

So I am around. I am pouting. I am bored. But I am alright. Hoping soon things will start going my way, if not with the help of the doctor we can hopefully find a middle ground that satisfies both of us.

I may not blog daily but I will still blog on occasion until things get moving again.

  1. I can save you some time, don’t get the injection, it won’t work. 😦 At least, it didn’t with me.

    I have some familiarity with knee issues: http://ericvandeven.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/the-pain-at-wounded-knee/

    You may want to try some supplements, I am currently taking Ostio-Biflex as they stopped making Trigosamine. It does help. Moving the knee, stretching and heat also seem to help.

    As you get older, and you are 23 years behind me, it will get worse. 😦 You can exercise, and do a bunch of things to keep the pain level even with your age. I can tell you that running seems to be the best for me. My knee is the one thing that doesn’t hurt! 🙂

    My ex-girlfriend has RA and at 45, just had her knee replaced. Hers was so bad she couldn’t walk.

    Good luck!
