I saw the orthopedist today. Best Possible News! No damage. It is just a bone bruise from hyperextending the knee when I slipped. The ligaments are fine and the meniscus appears fine. The doctor told me to give it two weeks and if it is not feeling significantly better then we will look at an MRI but he is very confident (his words) that there is no involvement of the meniscus and all is good. I could not be happier about this.
I have been losing sleep over this. So concerned that I would need surgery on the knee again. Now I can just baby the knee a little bit and it should resolve on its own.
And I have no restrictions on activities. Only what the pain limits.
It’s all good.
That’s all for tonight.
