09:41 pm - Achey weather
Yesterday's all-dayer has left me more wiped than I'd expected, given how limber I became after the split-shifts earlier in the week. Hope it's not the plague that laid so many people low last week, but that started as a cough and sore throat, so probably this is just the lingering effects of rain and cold and three days of early rising. Hot shower and bed, I fancy.

I see the knee guy on Monday and veer between intending to demand everything possible except surgery, and demanding surgery at once. Especially today when bones seem to be scraping against bone in a debilitating fashion. But then I remember to keep my abdominals tight and half the pain vanishes at once. Can it really be cured by correcting posture?

One of the Milk and Honey series was just fine, but now I wonder if I really want to read another three? OTOH they're the closest I've come to Carriger in many a long year and go down easily enough, so I shall persevere.

I thought surgery was always the last option. It's the one where if you change your mind you can't undo it.

They seem pretty gung-ho about it up here. Or maybe I just have knees where nothing else will work for long.

True, but your experience with your abdominals indicates that there are other things to be tried first. Knee surgery is typically very successful, so it's a good option.

I agree that surgery should be the last ever option ... only because I am a scaredy cat and do not like being cut up... even if it is supposed to make me feel better.

On the other hand ... if you've noticed that just by re-aligning your abdominal helps, then yeah I'd consider looking up other options.

I can but try. I'll see what the guy says today.
