My temporary solution is to do more natural things to heal it. Stay longer at the spa. Do hot and cold. Make compresses out of ginger and herbs. Exercise more in the water specifically for the knee. Are you laughing at me about now? I just HATE going to doctors and having operations. I have had three operations since coming here.
I also stopped by a table at the Lake Chapala Society where a homeopathic doctor was giving out advice. We had a talk and she gave me a tiny vial of tiny Alice in Wonderland pills that are for joint pain. I put four tiny pills under my tongue every four hours. (I will try anything not to have to get another operation.). So this morning, armed with my tiny pills, ginger and garlic and all my swimming stuff, I am going to go to the spa again. On the way home I will make an appointment for a massage and buy arnica if I can find it. I also put Tumeric in my morning coffee. My friends swear by it as a pain cure. I guess this is my crazy side. We all have at least one. I have many but this is a major one for me.
When I had my thyroid removed the doctor was sure it was cancerous. It wasn't. But now I can't regulate my weight. That I am sure is another reason for the bad knees. My friend Pat has the right idea. She says that she stays healthy by staying away from doctors. We will see. I will give myself two more months of my own therapy. And if it doesn't work, I am off to see the doctor again.
On a lighter note. Chico got his hair cut yesterday and his nails trimmed. Here he is this morning. Isn't he handsome?
