I survived my second day of physical therapy. The day went great, and no pain in my knee. After my first day of therapy, I am having pain in my gluteus, hamstrings, and calves. I can barely lift my legs, or sit in a chair. If I need to get up and get anything, I basically decide I don’t need it. I hurt to get up, but my knee don’t hurt. Just everything else. After today’s session we will see how sore I will be tomorrow. If I am too sore, maybe I will just stay in bed and not move.
I DO NOT LIKE PAIN!!!!!! I have until my next appointment on Wednesday @3pm to get over from being sore. I also have to set up an appointment for my injections for my knee, they have come in. The Doctor’s office called yesterday to let me know and to let me know what my part of the cost would be($312.42). I told them to let me get paid and I would set up an appointment next week. So I have to call them Monday and set one up. I will need to set it up opposite my physical therapy appointment, because I can’t do anything for 24 hours. Some say that the shot can be painful, and some say there is no pain. I hope I have no pain.
Right now I just want the pain in my lower half to go away. I will have to do some stretches to get the muscles used to the exercises that I am doing. Until my next session this is a painful book junkie, thank God I have a lot of books in my room I need to read. Until tomorrow, Jennifer out.
