It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted a blog – I want to say it’s because I’ve been busy.
Yes, we will say it was a combo of the holidays, vacation, and busyness of trying to serve in ministry, film & edit videos, all while entering into the production phase of our new board game (check out SoapBox Games).
…but I’m back….
Today, it’s a video on my latest gel shot experience.
12 years ago I tore my meniscus (working out on the elliptical of all places). I ignored it until a few years later when we went on a cruise. Simply walking around NYC for a full day, I tore it even further.
I’ll spare you the details, but the back of my knee turned into a blue baseball.
Surgery was the answer. It was supposed to make it all better.
…it made it all worse.
I had a scuff on my knee cap and the doc decided to take all the shredded cartilage out of my knee.
Bone on bone. That’s what I was left with.
My options were slim, but I opted for gel injections. (Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried them before). I have a love-hate relationship with them, but they provide me with much-needed relief.
I don’t want this post to be too long, so I won’t go into the details…but until something new and innovative comes along (like a bio-knee or something), I’ll be injecting this beauty of synovial-fluid-like gel into my knee for the next 30 years.
