The Good, The Bad, The Really Painful

The Good News: The injuries on my knee are minor and unintrusive enough to have surgery as an optional last resort.

The Bad News: Until I actually have surgery, I’ll probably have to live with the pain for the rest of my life. Or more likely I’ll be living on painkillers for the rest of my life.

The Bright Side: All I need to do is grow a couple of inches, have a rough stubble, buy a walking cane and I’ll be one of my favourite charcters to ever grace the TV screen.

The Down Side: I can’t grow any taller.

The Moral Of The Story: Always remember to take home the X-Ray images of your body so you can have a really cool post about it. Never ever take your knees for granted. Like Baz Luhrmann said said, “Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they are gone.” Really…take care of yourself. Some things do grow back. Some things never return for as long as you live. What you’re willing to put up with for that loss…that…I leave up to you.

  1. High heels? 😉

    Bu seriously, sorry to hear about the knees. I have a friend with knee trouble and I know how painful it is.

  2. Silly Pat: He’s 6 foot I think. I’m only 5’5″ That has got to be one tall heel. I suppose brown hair ain’t that bad.

    Chickybabe: Yeah, the ironic thing was I was trying to snowboard in Autralia thats why it got worse. Hehe.

  3. i was halfway through the post and was thinking, “hmm, sounds so house-y.” anyway did you bust your knees again or are you blogging about old injuries that are messing around with you again?

  4. why not go for surgery right away?? it wouldnt be anything major right?? at least not like house..ur way too young and youve acomplished so lil compared to him to even consider walking down his road laa….do something serious about it while you still can ok?? i may not know how bad it hurts… surely nth comparable to my kickass period pain…must hurt really bad…. i dont want to have to drag you all over the mall when i see you…haha…. hrmm… when do i get to see you?

  5. mm…sorry to hear. pack up on the calcium? Just get more opinions to make sure it’s not something that can only get worse, cause if it is then you’ll need to go for physiotherapy to build up muscles that’ll help prevent that.

  6. Pelf: Thanks

    Lishun: I finally saw the doc regarding the relapse of pain I’ve been getting since August last year. It’s a suspected cartilage tear, hence the surgery to confirm and repair on the spot.

    Honey: It isn’t really major but all the things are booked till 1st of March and recovery takes 3 weeks and…I have to perform it on both my knees. So for now, no dice. I did however get stronger painkillers which beats what I’m taking at the moment. I think best would be during the Chinese Ner Year though, we all have holidays.

    Lainie: The suspected culprit is a cartilage that can’t grow back so taking glucosamide (which helps rebuild cartilage) won’t work, the surgery is to remove the cartilage permanently and stop it from rubbing against my joint which is why it hurts. But yeah, I got to strengthen my legs, apparently my left leg is stronger than my right cause I’ve put all my weight on my left when my right knee often hurts. Can be bad in the long term to keep it that way.
