Do not misunderstand me. I said old, but I didn’t say I had lost ambition. In order to fulfill my dream I retired earlier to go climb mountains. That is why I am scared to loose any more mobility.
The past (since yesterday) family Dr. thought different. In his opinion I should enjoy life in another, more relaxed, way. He has obesities, which is bad for his knees and may be for mine … He agreed there is some loss in mobility but not that significant for my age. In his words everything comes to an end. “Marathon running is not for people like us”.
Made an appointment with a new (now much better and improved) GP (this Thursday). Found an Orthopedic who is specialized in sports. Hope I can get the new GP to prescribe that I can see that O.
Dare to change, if it doesn’t feel good. I waited over a year, which is too long.
As most of you said, see an Orthopedic to know going on.
Get a scan.
Get knowledge so you know what the O and you are talking about.
Of course every one wants the best treatment by a famous Professor. But I am more then happy when treated by a lesser "god" with a good result. I think my case is not that complicated. It is the result that counts. That is what I realized I have to ask for, to get that pain and click out of the way.
Be good, be kind, be happy.
