Stove Up

several years ago I tore the cartilage in my
knee and had to have sergery to remove part of it
and occasionally if i'm not careful it will
partially dislocate. Well it did yesterday when
I was getting up from the keyboard @ church.
I couldn't get it back in so I had to walk on it
till I got home. that caused it to swell and get
some kind of SORE. so i'm on crutches till the
sewlling goes down and I can wiggle it back in.
Oh well! another day I guess:

aw jeez gene - i got a weak wing too, but so far it doesn't go exploring on its own. and things heal so darn slow nowdays - probly due to inflation. :)

Yeah the older you get, the more things GO UP

Mebbe a heat pad an a few barley pops can speed things up for you? At any rate take it easy and enjoy the rest period. :^)

Heat will make it swell worse, you need to ice it to make the swelling go down ; )

Heat feels better and if it prolongs yer rest time then its a good trade off don'tcha think??? :^)

I reckon it all depends on how quik ya want the swelling to go down so you can put it back in place so it'll quit hurting so bad ; )

DANG Clipper, why dontcha just come out with it and tell us how ya REALLY feel about her? LOL! I know when you have a sore spot and you have to have a deep tissue massage it can be painful but it shouldn't EVER get to the point that it's a lingering pain. I had to do that to my Moms shoulder after she had her rotator cuff repaired. The insurance only paid for a few visits with the physical therapist but they told her if she had someone who could come down with her they would teach them how to work that shoulder so it wouldn't freeze up on her : ) Luckily I could go with her and she ended up getting full range of motion back in her shoulder.

Gave up the barley pops 9 yrs. ago but a little
heat & a few "diet cokes" @ a few hrs. of
tv or something easy & it'll go bask where it
belongs. just another sign of old age i guess. LOL
