A blog about my life with rheumatoid arthritis and all that goes along with it. The ups and downs. The highs and lows. The laughter and the tears. Sounds so dramatic, doesn't it?!

KNEE CHECK UP
I went to see my primary care doctors substitute today. She was very nice. She said my knee looks like it is healing although slowly. She cleared up my confusion surrounding the antibiotics. She said I need to take it four times per day even if the doses are less than 6 hours apart. It is more important that I get the medication. She also cleared up my confusion about my stomach problems; it is the antibiotics.
She said it would take some time for my knee to heal completely. The bruises are deep and the trauma to it was severe. I just need to keep an eye on it and to make sure the infection doesn't return.
