In August I had an accident at training and went to the hospital.
To make a long story short, I was sent to have an MRI of my knee and one week later. I got an appointment to meet up with the doctor to get results. I am that kind of person who tends to think about a lot of different scenarios and outcomes of a situation. Sometimes I get blown away by just my own mind being able to fit so many different scenarios into my brain.
In this situation, in particular, I had everything from “nothing to worry about” to “unfortunatly we are going to amputate your leg.“
Why walk on two legs when you can have four?
Meeting up with a doctor is always fun, you never know if they will be on time. Am I going to meet a doctor from Greys Anatomy or a doctor House? In my everyday life, I spend a lot of time and energy on communication and information. Not all doctors spend that much time on these things, I’ve noticed. I am a curious soul that likes to ask a lot of questions. I don’t know about you guys, but the Norwegian health care is amazing: we pay high taxes in this country, but AMEN to that.
My visit at the hospital turned out to become an approximately 45-minute lesson on knees and kneeproblems. My nickname at home is already Dr. Google, so imagine my excitement when I got a one-on-one session with a real doctor (and everything I am taught today I can say and use as a proper source, I’m not even going to Wikipedia this).
After my lesson was over, I almost forgot the reason I went there until I looked down at the papers in my hand and it said “REHAB FIRST – SURGERY LATER”. Apparently my ACL and I were not friends anymore. What an exciting message to receive on a Monday morning.
I am currently on a rehab program, and I got a date next week with a specialist. Fingers crossed I get a new lesson to fill out my resume and increase my Google skills.
