This week in health (shaking a leg...pain?)
Wednesday, May 04, 2016
Some Health Issues: As some of you may know, I have been dealing with calf, knee, and foot pain for nearly two years now. I have overcome planta fasciitis a little over a year ago (right foot). But last August, I developed severe knee tightness and leg pain. After much physical therapy, I finally had a cortisone shot and then an MRI. I had torn the meniscus in my left leg. I had surgery on my left knee Monday morning for a torn meniscus.  My guess is that much of this had to do with a sedentary lifestyle from sitting editing the MOOCs book and special issue project. These two big projects took their toll on my body. Smile.

My surgery went well two days ago. After I was knocked out by the anesthesiologist, my doctor (Dr. Fox) placed a mini-camera into my leg to have a look. It revealed that, other than the meniscus tear, my knee is generally in good shape with little wear and tear. I am now at home recovering and grading papers. I will be doing regular walking in a week. Exercise bike (and hot tub) in 2 weeks and running in 5 or 6 weeks. I go to Tyler, Texas May 22-23 and Korea May 26 to June 8th. I should be fine to travel by then.
