Can't Exercise for awhile

I went to the emergency room Sunday morning. I was going to go Saturday night but thought I would just see if I pulled something in my knee. I started crying Sunday morning and I knew I couldn't wait to see my doctor on Tuesday so hubby took me to the hospital. The doctor thinks I have a torn meniscus. They gave me a pain shot, showed me how to use crutches and gave me a prescription for heavy duty pain killers.
I tell you every time I try to lose weight and get healthy something happens to me. I am suppose to call a doctor to see if I need therapy or surgery. I want them to do an MRI first to see if it is torn. I am thinking of waiting a few more days before I call because my knee hasn't been bothering all that much and I am not in a hurry to go see another doctor.
My hubby's vacation started Saturday and we we suppose to go spent about 4 or 5 days at his sister's trailer but we decided not to. We just took a ride there now to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. She went to Woodsmoke for a few days of swimming and to be with her aunts & uncles. She comes back tomorrow. I didn't want to ruin her time of going there because of my knee.

Well, that is all for now. I will keep you all updated with my knee.

I've torn my meniscus numerous times. If you have surgery for it, it's a really easy surgery. You'll be walking the same day as surgery. Keep me updated!

Oh dear dutch, what a shame although if it is as Missie says hopefully you will be better soon. As for the diet why don;t you grab this oportunity to keep going with it you will be using a lot more energy withthe crutches !!
