So, thats 24 in total right? Goodness.. the good thing is the pills are bullet sized, which helps on the going down the throat part! But, I feel like my insides must look like this:
Good news: I have been following orders by my acupuncturist (whom I trust heaps) and have been taking these pills as directed for inflammation as well as general tonic as she tells me.
Cuz she thinks that doing this pill popping of Chinese Herbs & treatments once a week, as well as weekly trips to the Physio at the moment will help, and possibly reduce any need for surgery. Actually, the word ‘possibly’ isnt correct, shes under the belief that it WILL work, and surgery is a waste of my time, with little results at the end for my knees.
Why do I trust what she says? Well, the surgeon I went to see, just so happens to be hers as well. She trusts him, and he did a fantastic job on her knee when she busted it all to hell in a motorcycle accident. But, she also did a massive amount of acupuncture to her leg as well (even the surgeon cant believe how good shes walking again!) and she also went to physio. So, I figure shes a bit of an expert as well.
And, my physio is wonderful. Painful, but I think its helping too. So, combine everything together, and I am quite excited that I do not have to have knee surgery and be out of commission for at least 6 weeks on a ‘hopeful’ this will solve the problem.
Anyway, why not use up all your options before going to such drastic measures, right?
