I have been having some bad knee pain at night. Last night it started swelling pretty bad and after icing it for a good 30 minutes, it didnt feel better so thought I should go have it looked. I hadn't been able to get up and down the stairs at all, it was so painful!
so first of all, I just have to say this, never in my life have I dealt with such a rude triage nurse. She asked what I had been taking for pain, and I said tylenol but not alot because I was pregnant and didnt think it was a good idea. she rolls her eyes. she then says
"but you were just here in january for a miscarriage, how far along are you"
I said about 12 weeks
"thats not possible, when was your last period"
I reply, I didnt have one.
she goes on to say that she doesnt believe me and why would I get pg right away. I nearly cry by now, way to make me feel like **** when im sitting here in extreme pain.
so they bring me back and the nurse issnickering to the other nurses
"she got herself pregnant right away, she didnt even have a period, and now that she's pregnant, I dont know what she thinks we can do for her, she cant have an xray"
it took all my control to not jump out of that bed and ***** her out.
moving on....doc was worried about a blood clot or a break. they did 3 xrays and an ultrasound of my leg, all of which came back good.
its just a torn meniscus but he said that it can only be fixed with surgery but the orthopedic surgeon next week will have to decide if its neccesary.
so Im on crutches for, he said, 3 weeks, but I doubt that long. I have a knee brace on. it doesnt hurt that much during the day, just stiff, but around 4pm its bad. I only slept an hour last night because they stretched it so much last night.
I swear, this baby is causing my body to really be weird! I am normally healthy and never have problems!
ok, happy 12 weeks to me!! I am down 6 lbs and I feel awesome!!
