knee update

I saw a rehab specialist for my knees today. It’s been established that I have mild arthritis in my knees, and surgery isn’t an option, but I do have cysts behind my kneecap. (Well, behind my right kneecap, and probably also my left one, but insurance would only cover an MRI of one knee. Insurance is ridiculous.)

The doctor examined me, and my symptoms (sharp, non-lingering pain when I do certain things) doesn’t indicate to him that the cyst is actually the problem. So we’re going to do a month and a half of physical therapy two days a week and see where that leads. If that helps, great. If it doesn’t, we look at doing an MRI of the other leg and maybe draining the cyst(s).

Cha cha cha.
