Well, I had an assessment done on my left knee at the Surgical Assessment Centre just this past monday. A physio therapist & a surgeon both examined my knee & looked at my xrays. They concluded that I do need to have surgery to determine the severity of the damage in my left knee. On the day of my assessment they could actually visualize how swollen my knee was, as well they could also feel how my knee clicked & locked. Since the assessment was done, my knee is even worse. I can no longer put weight on that leg & am confined to the house. No stairs, no walking, just a severe amount of pain that is actually knocking me out cold. That is the only way I get sleep is when I'm knocked out. I've no idea how long I will have to wait for surgery, but time is of the essence for moi. I wish I could say things are better, but they simply are not.
