Knee Details

Well, it's not "kneesles" or "kneemonia". Nope, I have a malaligned patella. The doctor is going to do arthroscopy and lateral release surgery to release the tendon that is keeping the patella from tracking properly. He will also clean up the cartilage behind the patella to allow it (the patella) to track more smoothly.

After having multiple doctors give me platitudes and anti-inflammatory medication, I am looking forward to finally getting this ten-year-old problem fixed. I think I mentioned in a previous post that he is the first doctor who actually asked where the pain was and noticed that it is nowhere near the bone tumour that is causing me no problems.

He could do the surgery before my trip, but we discussed it and decided to wait until afterward.
