Bad Fall

I have always been told I was a klutz, and I'm not one to disagree! LOL!

Although last Thursday night's fall could have been much worse than it was.

I was taking a shower, and rinsing off, soap and cream rinse, and I got a mild leg cramp in my right leg, while turning to rinse off the right side of my body, when I lost my balance and, in what seemed like slow motion, I fell and landed on my knees on the edge of the tub, between the sink and the toilet, with my hands on the floor.

I went to Urgent care on Friday, after leaving work early, as the pain was too much to bear much longer, and they took x-rays. Nothing is broken or fractured, al I have is a contusion on my left knee.

I'm on an anti inflammatory for the next 10 days and have to elevate the leg and ice the knee and wear an ace bandage on it, which I have abandoned for one of those slip on knee braces, they kind an athlete wears.

The Dr. wanted me to take a few days off work, but I couldn't as the boss was going to be out of town this past weekend and needs me to work for a few hrs. on Saturday and open on Sunday.

I'm going to the Dr. on Thursday, to see what the results were of my blood work, as there was an indication that I may be anemic.

He will also have the results of my x~rays from last Fri. Still wearing the knee brace, and icing it and still on the anti inflammatory medication, at least for the next 7 days.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune.

Sounds like you need a full-body massage from someone with a thick Australian accent.

Best wishes for a speedy recivery.
