This is my knee. The dark sorta oval shape near the top is my patella (kneecap).
The big dark area is my femur (upper leg bone). The white areas are pockets of inflammation.
My patella is not aligned in my femur’s trochlear groove where it should be. So on Thursday, I am having knee surgery to get back in the groove. A lateral release to cut (release) the ligaments on one side of my knee, done arthroscopically. And then an incision to tighten up the ligaments on the other side.
This should be interesting and I fervently hope it helps with my chronic knee pain.
I plan to sleep for days, interspersed with reading and movie watching. And I may have some interesting posts, depending on how drugged up I am.
