Last Wednesday I had my bad knee give out on me. After the swelling and additional pain did not abate or subside I went to see my doctor yesterday not wanting to take any chances. I left that appointment with a knee brace and crutches thinking it's a possible meniscus tear. I was told that at least until the results of the MRI are in no real bending or no weight bearing. The next available appointment for the MRI is on September first! Grrrrrrr.
