I won’t be updating this for a little while. With the blessing of my oncologist, I am going ahead and having a knee replacement tomorrow. Chemo aggravated the joint and introduced a lot of pain, and no amount of working out is helping very much. In fact, despite working quite hard on stretching and toning the muscles, I can’t straighten that leg by a significant amount. It has introduced a limp and a lopsided walk which is throwing all sorts of things out of whack.
My oncologist encouraged me to do it as a quality of life issue. For me, it means that there is a life ahead that is worth improving the quality of. And that’s a very good thing.
