My left knee has been more bothersome than usual lately, actually quite painful with swelling. I thought it was just osteo acting up but then it got worse and worse so I had an MRI-got a almost completely severed ACL and torn miniscus?(I just know they are ligaments that line your bones under your cartilage)-anyway torn ligaments, 3 in all. Do not remember going skiing lately-so not sure how I tore my ACL. The only thing I had a happen to me lately was when i dropped the tray on my leg at work, but that was on my shin?---I did twist my knee a bit and told the workman's comp doc that I thought that my knee was hurting more than usual, but he said was probably mt arthritis acting up from my gate being thrown off. My job is on the line, If I have one more absence before Nov 24th without a 24 hour notice I am terminated. I crashed and burned after my trip to Orlando and had to take last thurs and fri off due to pain in my knee and fatigue. so ladies and gentlemen my days are numbered. when I see the doc today I will ask if the tray incident would have been enough force to tear acl and then see what he says-if so back to workman's comp doc. If he puts me out of work and I know this is surgical-it will have to start on thursday so I give the 24 hours notice. so it looks like a little vacation is coming my way-not exactly how I would have ordered it, but none the less a rest huh? anyway thanks for listening to me whine once again and I hope everyone is doing okay-I have not been on in a while-my computer crashed last week and took a while to get up and running again. Got to get in the shower-anyone know a good labor law attorney in greensboro area-looks like I might need one or workmans comp before this is all over-I cannot be terminated or can not tap into my bennnefits. Life is a trip and crazy twisted trip cathy You guys have been telling me to slow down maybe the big guy up stairs is doing it for me.
