There is a small tear (a break/cut) in the meniscus. This is "han-getsu-ban" in Japanese?
The muscles or ligaments behind the knee are getting better, little by little. I can stand now, but I still can not hold my leg straight...so no walking!
The doctor said the meniscus should get better naturally - no medicine or operation. Just wait. Don't overuse the knee. Don't run/ski/carry heavy things. Gentle time. The bone is also bruised.
I have to go back to hospital April 7th.
Maybe I can walk a little at home next week? Maybe.
Yesterday I had a lot of knee pain - I don't know why. The doctor gave me painkillers to help. Today is ok.
So! My quiet life with crutches will continue. At home I can't do much. I can drive. I can teach. I can walk with crutches or a wheelchair.
It will be a quiet spring.....
