I want to join a gym again, maybe go mornings? She's a happy baby then, could leave her with husband, once on weekends and then twice a week?
I am tired of hurting... but still have a couple of years to go to get to five years knee surgery free. 3rd ACL was festering 5 years ago about now. Ew. And then 3 years ago I was dying from the worst.pain.ever. Bone granules from the graft I needed post debridement got stuck and calcified in my soft tissue while working their way up and out of the tibial tunnel. Ouch.
I can't believe that was five years ago. Was it really that long ago now I was in the best shape of my life? It was a different knee back then though, empty and raw. Now it's crowded, remodeled and inflamed.
Data says to lose weight and exercise to reduce OA pain. It's honestly something I have never given a fair shot. I should do that. I've scheduled a physical, time to get a baseline.
