Title: fell in shower today
Post by: Treeburn on December 24, 2012, 09:03:10 PM
Hi everyone, happy holidays. I have had 5 knee surgeries in one year, meniscal tranplant Aug 20 and I had a major debridment  surgery 20 days ago. ( arthrofibrosis) . This morning I was getting out of the shower and I have a step on the way out. Anyways, as my knee does not bend too well,i thought I was over the step but I was not. I tripped and my bad knee twisted really bad and I heard a major crunch noise. I had a PT appointment and my knee was so swollen he said I could not do PT. There really is not much i can do at this point I guess. Not sure why I even wrote you all but I fele like I needed to vent. The pain is horrendous but thank goodness I have medication. The worst part is I have to fly tomorrow to see my family. Yikes!

Hang in there!  Ice and elevate if you can!  Take plastic bags and have them fill with ice at the airport..Ask for wheelchair assistance.
