Helpless And Left For Dead
As several of you already know, I got some rather depressing news today.
Having had a sting-y knee all week after trying to combine two activities on Sunday, I went to my physio session expecting to be told to just continue with the exercises and take it easy. But instead, Briony said that there was nothing else she could do for me and that she was referring me back to my GP for an MRI. Basically, once we'd got the plica to the point where I could do her resistance tests without pain as I did before Christmas, it should have been a case of strengthening the knee and leg in general so that I could get back to normal activities, and it should NOT be stinging and feeling puffy again like this, just because I upped my activity a little.
I asked her what might happen now and of course surgery is a potential option. It doesn't necessarily mean that the whole synovial joint has to be removed, but that perhaps something has frayed in there that needs tidying up. But either way, it meant no more physio sessions for now. She didn't even want to test me on my progress, and I was so looking forward to telling her that I'd managed to get my bridge reps up from 5 seconds to 7 (much harder than it sounds). "I'm sorry I couldn't heal you," she said as we left the cubicle. I felt terrible, let me tell you.
Anyway, she should have contacted my GP's surgery by now, so I've scheduled a telephone appointment with my GP next Wednesday to discuss the next steps. Was very down this afternoon (there were some self-pitying tears at one point), but I guess all I can do is continue with my daily exercises and see what happens next.

I had some self pitying tears too, but I think yours are entirely more justified.|
I wish this could have worked for you. If you want a rant or distraction or anything, let me know. I wish I could hug through computer screens.
