my knees are gone

my knees are gone

Postby GodsStudent on Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:28 am

I dont know if I've posted here that I have severely crooked knees, but even though Im youngish (50), I was having a lot of trouble with pain in my legs and knees and after MRIs found out the meniscus were shred to pieces in both and I am 100% bone on none in both....so off to the knee surgeon last December. We scheduled my surgery for January and then I found out the house I was living in was developing serious foundation issues, so we had to move in Feb....for that reason I put off my knee surgery. I gave myself time to get set back up in a new house, but something really bad happened. My knees got so bad that now I literally cannot control my legs and am in severe around the clock pain. The pain coming from knees has activated the RSD in my spine and from my mid L4=L5 region of my spine and all the way down my legs I am in pain like nothing I have ever known. It's the most severe I've ever encountered.

My pain mgt. dog is setting up a new practice as he split from his usual group June 1. I cant get an appt. with him to get help.
The knee surgeon who is doing my knees is booked solid. For the past few days I've tried to call and can't even get a return call (I have a nurse friend who said they are extremely slammed right now, as this friend runs the OR where this surgeon practices).

I am getting overwhelmed by the pain and literal lack of ability to walk. Please offer prayers with me and for me, if you feel inclined. I really need them.

Praying for you, GS.

I've had that kind of pain before. Hold on for the gift.

Much love, and much prayer!

I’m sorry Lisa that it is so bad. My heart goes out to you. We will pray for healing and if God chooses to use Doctors, then we pray for expedited care.
Gal 2: 14-19 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law ( the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus ), died to the law ( the law of sin and death ) that I might live to God. Parenthetical remarks added are mine.

Thank you all for joining me in prayer for relief. I have gotten an appointment for the 21st with the knee surgeon's PA. I have requested the office manager try to find me a sooner appointment and when she gets back in next week (vacation), hopefully that will happen.
This not being able to walk and when I do, being in 10 out of 10 on the pain chart has undone me and my life. It is like when I had my spine injury and surgery back in 2012. I wasn't expecting this to get so bad, and am quite shocked it has. I am ok....(just ok not good) when I sit, but when I go to stand, the pain is extremely intense. Then, each step is grueling. I regret not sticking with the surgery schedule, but I had to move, and knee surgery and moving just don't work together.
Life can be so tricky and hard.

Please continue to pray for relief from the pain and also, my groin muscle left side is pulled as a result of this "stuff" and I am prayerful that this muscle will resolve so that when I do get the surgery, I am not hampered by that issue, too.

Much love to all of you....I cannot believe how much I feel like I know and love all of you given I haven't actually met any of you (to my knowledge). My FP family is actually important to me.....picture that....an internet family.....Growing up, had you told me that this would be what it was like at this age in my life, I'd have never believed it. I lived a good deal of my life "pre internet" and could have never conceived such a thing! :alrighty:

You can count on prayers from me. Wish I was closer to you, so I could help you out some. I know you have some other big issues on your plate too. I will pray as you have asked.

Hi RT: Well, the knee appointment went great...got scheduled for end of Sept. to do 1st knee surgery....THEN the bottom fell out, so to speak. I had been feeling a lot of pain in my legs and even large muscle groups in back and so forth, and it kept getting worse and worse....I was thinking it was my knees making the rest of me hurt until it got to the point that I could not walk. Different doctors, based on what I was describing, diagnosed different things and wanted me doing physical therapy for these muscle groups, but when I tried, the issues went from bad to worse to horrendous....so I got an MRI and we found something totally unexpected going on with the left hip bone. Now I am getting lots of steroids and bed rest for 5 weeks and we'll see about the knee surgery. I can't have the knee surgery until I am released to do so by the hip surgeon........lol and sigh and seriously???? !!!!!

Here's a thread on the hip issue.
