Sharing dreadful gel shot procedure
done hours ago
a lot of fluid drained off of knee
which added to pain
not as painful as other procedures I have had in the past
told I responded very well.....
walked back through parking lot with cane in hand
Jamie by my side
told my pain tolerance high
told carry on with life
no elevating or icing
move and rest
will return next 2 weeks to finish shots
a mystery how long pain relief lasts ( conversation with lady in waiting room
said hers lasted 6 months.....and had 2 other times.
thankful it is over
tonight I will sleep
with the dread of this procedure over
knee almost looks normal
where it was twice its normal size
I had read of so many horrible painful tales of this procedure
my girl said
"mama you need to stop doing all this research"
So ever thankful
and thankful to my girl
Jamie - who never lets me down - Bless her
and sleep I must tonight.
thankful for many thoughts going my way....
