Why me?
« on: April 13, 2010, 07:11:11 PM »




With all the cold and rain, it's been a struggle to get things done on my daily driver Cad-dy Eldo, but with the weather finally getting better and some free days, I got to do all 5 brake hoses, serpentine belt, power steering pump and a tune-up on the thing. Had to drill out  2 broken screws in the HEI distributor too (#@%^ GM!)
The next day my right leg hurt bad after all that kneeling under the rear of the car, but Advil allowed me to continue working on it. Fast forward to Monday and it was really bad. Couldn't walk at all. We had a aluminum cane so I used that to amble around.
 Today I went to the doctor and he said it was either a Baker's cyst that popped in the knee and went into my leg muscles, or I had a life-threatening blood clot in there....

They sent me right away to a vascular Dr. for an ultrasound.....turns out no clot *whew*
But this is P$$ing  me off because I still can't walk or work and the Imperial sits, so close to being roadworthy....... and here comes the sun........

Sorry to hear that Bob...I have a baker's cyst in my right knee too. When I did alot of squatting and kneeling it would cause me fits...One time I remember I couldn't walk on it for 3 days....so, I wound up having arthroscopic surgery on it last fall and it seems to be a lot better now. I had a torn meniscus on both sides of the knee. You also could have a torn meniscus which causes fluid to form and then the baker cyst fills up. Maybe an MRI would show the real problem?
 
Hope you get it figured out...argghhh...getting old ...Why is youth wasted on the young? We need to figure out what Steve is doing...Maybe he's hoarding the fountain of youth!

thanks guys!

I'm on Celebrex for a while and nothing was said about further damage....squatting and wrenching on the car probably burst the cyst and when the fluid escaped into my calf muscles it caused the leg to swell up.....never really had knee probs before this....

I thought Celebex was off the market?  Save that stash!!  I
need a hip and knee replacement, and I'm putting it off as long as I
can... the parts'll probably be made in China.
