So…I had my appointment with the orthopaedic specialist and those of you who had placed bets on me needing an MRI can cash in now. He thinks I’ve damaged cartilage in there but wants to get a good look inside.
Good news: I may be able to get the scan done in the next few days.
Bad news: I’m in Spain for most of next week so an appointment may be more difficult
Good news: he never mentioned the words “operation” or “surgery”
Bad news: it hasn’t been ruled out, either
Good news: the specialist was an incredibly nice guy
For more of this in-depth and scintillating reporting on the state of my lower joints, watch out for more posts after the MRI.
