1st step to new knees

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

I went to my Ortho doctor today. No surprise that today's x-rays showed very very very angry knees I need two replacements. I've been avoiding replacement surgery for years. Dr is amazed I'm still putting off and walking and that I still have good range of motion. I need to get weight off now more than ever. He says no to knee surgery till I lose 30 lbs. I agree. If I lose 90 lbs, he will consider doing them both at same time. That is my goal. He has ordered euflexxa bilaterally. There is a 50/50 chance it will work. I'm going to try it. They've ordered it and it should be in within a week. I'm believing I'll be in the successful 50%. I'm praying for some relief so I can enjoy walking at the ocean in September. I haven't been able to do that for a few years. So, lose this weight now for more than vanity. I think I can.
