So the x ray shows no abnormalities

So the x ray shows no abnormalities. This is not entirely unexpected - only bone damage would show up. This in it's own way is positive news.
My knee remains in a parlous state though. True I no longer have to crawl up and down stairs but it is still weak and unstable. I cannot even do a hobbling run on it.
I don't trust it.
The way the National Health Service (NHS) is set up in the UK dictates that I have to follow a specific path -Doctor, X ray, Doctor and physio assessment before I can have an MRI scan. I'd rather be following a woodland trail.
It may sound bizarre but I want an MRI. I am worried that the physio's will tell me that I don't have a serious problem and that I can be sorted out with physio and rest.
I don't want to have a serious problem with my knee but I do want my knee assessed deeply, I want to be 100% sure what the issue is. I really don't want to be back in this place in 12 months time. If I need a surgical cleanup then it must happen sooner rather than later.
Tomorrow I have my first physio appointment, lets see what happens!

  1. This is weird, I was just thinking of you today and wondering how things were...this is all good news and a sensible, if frustrating, view you are taking Bhundu. Stay strong, heal well my friend.
