YEAOWCH!

Stupid &#$@!ing knee joint... about fifteen feet from the employee's entrance at work, my right knee dislocated, bad on a slick bit of heavy frost. Had to punch the kneecap back into place. Boy, that hurt. They saw me inside, and helped me to my desk. This hasn't happened in at least five years, and thank god for that. Hurts like a sunofagun. I'm going to have to find where I left that stupid ace bandage...

Perhaps you should, you know, go to a doctor!

We are now living in the age of socialized medicine! Surely they can fix you right up! :)

Don't be ridiculous. I've had this for over twenty years, it's nothing that a doctor can do anything about, barring invasive surgery. Which I had on one knee when I was a teenager. It didn't really work.

My knee is swollen up a bit, but nothing out of the ordinary, and I'm hobbling around well enough w/ aid of my cane. Just no long walks for a while.

Hope it feels better soon. I'm not suggesting medical attention -- had work done on my wrist and it didn't make it *right* again. Sometimes living with what you have is the lesser of two evils.

Thanks. It's not really hurting right now so much as being awkward & not-very-bendy. I'm more annoyed with not being able to enjoy today's good weather than anything else.

Bull, go see a doctor to see if there is something that can be done, or you will end up being a nominee for major knee surgery well before your time. The Old Man!
