After going through months of doctor's visits, x-rays, and physical therapy, my orthopedic surgeon (supposedly one of the best in the area) has definitely determined that he needs to re-operate on my left knee. He believes the prosethic has come loose. Oh joy!
I asked him if the second surgery would be as "bad" as the first, and because he doesn't have to cut into any more bone, he believes the answer is no. Of course, he is the man who told me I'd be back to work in two weeks after the first replacement.
I'm fairly depressed about this situation. Bionic knees are supposed to last at least 20 years. Mine made it to 3.5 years - and we have no idea what caused it to loosen.
On to happier subjects, it's time for our weekend sharing, the Friday Forum. I love this part of our week. What new products did you discover this week? Did you find any deals you couldn't resist? Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers will have moved on.
