Since a lot of people asked about it, here's the story about my knee.
Half May last year, on a friday, I had to go and pick up my dog from old friends from my parents.
Since I wanted to go on a bike, but my bike had a flat tire and I didn’t know how to make it quick, I grabbed my mothers bike and rode off.
I didn’t even reach 100 meters before things went wrong.
I had to stop for come cars, but got stuck on the bike saddle and fell over to my left side. I don’t remember much of the fall, since it happened too fast, but I do remember sitting on the ground, unable to move my leg because it was twice as thick and because of the pain.
Luckily, two people had seen me fall and helped me get up and get home, they even made sure to lock the bike and that I was inside my house.
When I finally sat down on the couch, I called my mom. She came home as soon as possible and after my dad got home and we had dinner, we went to see the weekend doctor.
Well, that doctor said that they couldn’t take a picture to see if a bone was broken, which I understood, since my leg was too thich for that.
But, she also said that she wouldn’t send me to the orthopedist, because there was nothing wrong.
A couple of months (and a lot of pain) later, I went to see an orthopedist and he asked me why I didn’t come and see him earlier, because my knee was kind of fucked up.
I got my first surgery in November.
My outer meniscus was snapped in half, but they did save some things of it.
Well, a week or two later, when I was able to walk again, I was showering and suddenly, my leg disobeyed me and made the rest of my outer meniscus snap.
So, I had to get a second surgery, on my birthday, the 6th of January.
Everything went well, actually, after the second one, until a month or two after it.
The pain slowly got back and at first, it didn’t bother me.
This went on, until today, where I have to take 30 mg morphine a day to somewhat keep the pain down, but not all of it.
I have to wait for my third surgery, where they will replace my outer meniscus and restore some of my cruciate ligaments, since one of them snapped as well and the other one was fucked up.
Okay, well, now you guys know why I am in a lot of pain all the time.
I don’t know when the surgery will take place, I don’t even know what they will do exactly to restore all of it….
Anyway, this is why there are a lot of crap posts and emotional stuff on my blog lately, the medicine make my mood swing and makes me kinda needy. Sorry for that, really, I try to keep it all down and all!
Thanks for reading all of this!
