PT day 1
Monday, November 27, 2017
I went for an eval to see if physical therapy will help my recent knee pain today. They said YES!
It seems I have very strong muscles in my legs and very tight tendons.... I need to stretch more. Then my tendons/ muscles won't pull unevenly on my kneecap / joint. First day and I am in worse pain than in a long time, but they said that sometimes happens, give it a while and it should get better. Maybe next time I'll ask about pool therapy... The only thing is I don't have a swim suit..... Wrong season to get one easily.
My last doctor's appointment was 10 days or so ago and my numbers improved so much he said that I must have made some significant changes in my lifestyle because the medicine wasn't strong enough to make that big of a difference in the numbers. I also lost 6 pounds in the 3 months since I last saw him. He did add 2 more supplements though, one to help with the bruising caused by the prescription and another to help with my joint pain.
Now to keep up the changes as best as I can with the knee pain and lose 10# or more (20 would be nice, that would have me overweight instead of obese) before my next appointment in May.
