I swear, I'm "this close" to asking for it to be amputated.
I went to see Jeff again yesterday. X-Rays again are normal...but he aspirated a fair amount of fluid from it and injected steroids. It's feeling ok...better than last week but I'm getting frustrated. I'm in my late 30s and I walk like I'm 70! We talked...it's likely that I have a strong inflammatory reaction and neither one of us thinks surgery again would be prudent (well, I wouldn't let him back in so fast anyway).
