For My Knee Doctor!

Post by Jj-B Owner on Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:15 pm

Well no, this was not "Fun" - I had to make an 'on demand' by the doctor, not me to see him. Troubles with the knee. Ya, there are some yellow flags of concern. But he is so great. He is straight forward - honest and most of all understanding.

We once again had to pull fluid from knee -- 150+/- CC of pale red fluid.

But the thing is - he did not make me wait and wait and wait. He made the call and he answered it! cheers

Yes my knee is grumpy, but it is 150 cc lighter in unneeded fluid. (I just hope it's not infected, because that will likely mean another open knee surgery.) affraid

Thank you Dr. J. Stickney .. as I told him, "You are aware of my medical history and I mean this in all honesty. You are at the top of the list of the best doctor's I have had work on me. Thank you."

Glad you got a good one! Mrd went to one Dr. who told him just to take more Tynelol. I asked him aren't you even going to xray them? He said no and acted indignent. Well mrd was happy cause he was afraid he'd have to have surgery and went for quite a while just poping pills. After urging (threatening) him he finally he went to a dif. doctor and it was bone on bone. He also got a good Dr. that time.

Are you taking antibiotics? Just said a prayer for you. flower

WOW, that's definately not good! I have low blood pressure and sometimes if I take something it makes it drop so I avoid pills and meds all I can. Would one of those kits for bee stings work?

Ah, a fellow low blood pressure person. Mine was 90/60 then went up to 100/65. I still have permission to eat all the salt I want... cheers

It upsets my family and friends that have high BP and they see me pour on the salt .... They get "grumpy". Though I don't "pour pour" it on .... I just don't worry about it and have not really increased my salt intake ... just nice I do not have to worry about it! Very Happy

There is one friend that I do 'watch it' - he has such HIGH BP , that I simply do not eat salt with him around, his BP goes up just watching me eat salty foods ... he is more then just jealous!
