Yesterday, I woke up with very little, if any, pain in my left ankle and left knee. It was so wonderful. There's always hope! Most of the day, I didn't even use my cane. Friday, I went to PT and had it kinesio taped. I also called Urgent Care and was put on a different anti-inflammatory drug but it can cause stomach ulcers and bleeding so I was worried about that with my upcoming surgery. It also totally made me a zombie. Saturday, I woke up to take the medicine with food and proceeded back to sleep with my overhead bedroom light on! I slept for another five hours!
On Friday, I also asked two prayer chains to pray for my ankle/knee. It definitely felt like a miracle when I woke up on Saturday; the pain was not entirely gone but it was definitely down to a degree where I could live with it. Last night and this morning, the pain has returned slightly more but it is still manageable and I think if I took some Tylenol, it would pretty much go away.
