Of course...why me....
« on: April 10, 2007, 03:22:28 PM »
Why do things have to happen to me?! I was walking down these black marble stairs at school yesterday and missed the
bottom step and landed on both of my knee caps. I landed so hard that they were numb when I got up. Now they are
seriously brusied today and super sore. One is a little swollen....

Why oh why....... :-[

hi there VanillaBeanGonzo,
i can really feel for you!!
why is it we always seem to injure ourselves in the one area we really could do without!!
i had a fall at 5 weeks post op (down all 14 of our stairs) i was feeling very sorry for myself for about a fortnight and it has really set me back in my rehabbing.
i hope this has not caused any damage for you except your bruises,take it easy and get some rest (elevate and ice to try and get the swelling down)
sending you a <<((BIG HUG!!))>>
take care,
claire x
