I had an appointment with an orthopedist today to follow up on the knee. He was soooooo much more helpful than the ER doctor, but then, he's a specialist, so that makes sense.

Good news: I'm walking again. It doesn't hurt (well, except for muscles grumpy at not being used for two weeks), and he's not worried about walking aggravating the injury.

Bad news: It's very likely a meniscus tear. I have an MRI next week to see how bad. Depending on that, the options range from fairly mild (anti-inflammatories, or an injection to bring the swelling down) to arthroscopic surgery (yikes!). I'm hoping for the former, needless to say. And no TKD until the swelling is down and the injury resolved. :(

But I can walk! And that's all to the good. Though it feels pretty strange right now.

And he cleared me for hot-tubbing, though wants me to keep using ice for the discomfort, not heat.

Edited for spelling. Bleah, spelling.
