No News Is Good News

Saw the orthopedic surgeon again today. We discussed surgery and concluded that it won't be happening until after FilkOntario and Thing, as he doesn't want me taking a long car trip (or two) shortly after surgery. And he's written me a prescription for a hinged knee brace, which would probably be a very good thing.

He also was distressed by the amount of fluid retention in my lower left leg and foot and sent me off to the hospital for a venous doppler to make sure that I didn't have a clot that was causing it. Happily, no clot.

Yay!
