Knee jerk reaction…

My knee appointment to see the consultant has finally been confirmed after the complete NHS admin disaster of 2 weeks ago.

It is the 18th of July. 2 weeks tomorrow. which is just as well as I am now having more bad days than good with the knee.

After a visit to the Docs last week, during a particularly bad knee day, he actually told me what specifically was causing the pain and why I do have good and bad days with it.

The cartilage and the ligament are damaged and the damaged bits are flapping around in the knee. Those flappy bits sometimes get caught in the knee joint resulting in a big ouchy situation.

The treatment according to my GP will be surgery to repair/remove those flappy bits.

So there we have it. Just looking forward to getting it sorted and removing the ouchy bits from my life.
