Not Walking To Walking

I’m writing this about myself in the hopes that it will help some one.

This started back in December 2005
It was raining out and i had to go to the store. When i was in the store I slipped and fall. I made it to the counter
checked out. Got home and had my hubby take me to the hospital. They took xrays and put me in a air cast and on crutches for 5 days till i could see another doctor. 5 days later i went to this other doctor.
He said i as fine after looking at my xrays. told me i didn’t need the crutches and to walk.

Well in January 2006 we moved to a new state and i was still having problem with my right knee. More xrays only to be told that it was arthritis in my knee and i had to wear a knee support when i walked.

Well I was sent for an MRI and to a
Orthopedic Surgery because i kept having problems with my knee it was buckling on me when i was walking and i was in allot of pain. Orthopedic Surgery looked at the xray and MRI and told me i had arthritis and he said it looked like i had either torn some cartilage or my meniscus. He told me i would need surgery to repair this.

So i set up a date which was July 13,2007. to have my knee done. Well
a month before this i fall and sprined my left ankle. I still had my surgery done on my knee. On July 13,2007
i went into surgery and i came out with my leg hurting but i walked out on crutches. I had some cartilage removed from my left side of my knee and my meniscus removed from the right side. Now this was all from that slip and fall accented i had 2 years before in DEC. 2005 doctor told me. I was all so told that there are 4 stages of antithesis and i’m at stage 2 now. I got rid of the crutches 6 days later. Went back in two weeks to the doctor. Ever thing seemed fine. Started walking son to school in August 2 miles in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.

Well the end of October i fall again in my home. Kids split some thing and i slipped on it. leg went under refrigerator and had to push it out.
So from October till November i was in allot of pain. Went back to the doctor. Was sent back to the Orthopedic doctor again. He looked at my knee,back and leg. Said i had torn the inside of my left muscle on my right leg. So he put me in physical therapy. Come to find out i twisted my Sciatica joint which twisted ever thing from my waste down. I had to have a cortisone short in my back to take the swollen down. I was in physical therapy for 6 months. To keep pain free i must do excise for the rest of my life because of the back problems.

I’m back to walking 4 miles a day 5 days a week. I’ve lost 27 pounds and don’t need high blood pressure meds because of my walking. I feel great.

Thanks for reading my blog.
Have a great day.
