Have been limping around for days on bad knee. This morning I couldn't walk on it. Had to crawl downstairs to feed cats.

Called 911. Went to VA. After eight hours, some X-Rays and a sonogram later, they sent me home with crutches, two meds I was already taking (that weren't wprking) and one new, and an ace bandage.

Got home, went to bathroom, and on the way back downstsirss, something went SNAP loudly in my knee. I spent ten minutes lying on the stairs, screaming in pain.

Back to ER. Still there now. Leg brace and mystifird staff, but also one injection. Beats me.

Ouch :/ Knees really shouldn't be that much of a mystery injury thing. Hope that something makes it start healing and stop escalating.

Doubt it'll be the VA that figures it out. When's the earliest they could do an MRI? Monday?

You would think. OTOH, it was only two years ago that someone realized that the knee actually has FIVE ligaments, not four. It turns out that some of the knee surgeries that didn't work as expected were a result of not accounting for that; that's why the people who discovered it were looking. Oopsie!

(sorry for late reply - holidays!)
