So, after being on cloud nine since my grand daughter was born. I had an appointment at the knee clinic. 1st Jan this year, a mad dog jumped at me I jumped out of the way, didn't fall but twisted a bit. I kept hoping it would get better, but have now had to admit, it's not. It won't straighten or bend as much as the other one. I have 'torn my meniscus'. Does any one know what that is? I've got to have key hole surgery. Sadly I went into a panic, as soon as the Dr mentioned hospital, and didn't listen/understand what he was on about. I would look on google, but don't think its a good idea, might make it worse. I'm such a big girls blouse, when it comes to hospitals, and Dr's. Pathetic.

Thank you egg. Seems like quite an important bit. Considering I didn't even fall over, can't imagine how I did so much damage. Damned annoying. I saw the x-ray, there wasn't a gap in between the bones at all, and a big gap the other side. Thank you again. I'm just going to have to man up. I would be cross with the dog, but, it was the idiot owner. Poor thing was really frightened and nervous, knocked a lady flying behind me.

Thank you. I've had a bit of a look at what happens, and how long to recover. I've had the MRI appointment come through. Strangely it's at a private hospital, didn't expect that. Hopefully at the appointment after that, I can ask my questions, i.e will it go back to normal, will I be able to walk for more than 30 minutes without limping. I broke the same leg, very near the knee, 30 years ago, I don't suppose that helped. Motorbike accident, the mistakes we make in our youth, come back to haunt me. Fingers crossed.
