Still In The Game

in the game

What is the game?  The game of life.  Over a year ago I found out I have arthritis in my knees.  That was a game changer.  I was running 3 times a week, boxing or IT 3 times a week and then bam.  One day my right knee swole up and I couldn’t bend it or walk on it let alone run.  Couple days went by and it did not get any better.  So I went to Cary Orthopaedics and that is where the doc told me I have arthritis in my knee and would require a knee replacement but to wait until I was 60+.  My next question what am I going to do until then?  Answer – I can give you a cortisone shot.  I declined the shot.

Man I was not happy.  Weeks went by and I was contemplating having my knee replaced.  Dude I work with  told me he was getting shots in his knee to help with pain.  So I started looking around and  I got lucky and just happened to find Flexogenix.  They offer non-surgical options for knee pain.  Scheduled an appointment and boom I was on board.

I am getting shots in both knees and they last anywhere from 6-months to a year.  The injections contain lubricating and cushioning gel called Hyaluronic acid.

I may not be able to run 3 times a week but I still put in work on the weights and box now and then.  I am just glad to still be in that game, that game of life.  Talk about being HYPE!!!  I do miss basketball and long runs but now it is about quality of life.  Just getting to sleep without pain in my knee was a biggie.

I am sure I will have to have my knee replaced someday but until then I am going to enjoy my real knee as long as I can.  Keep grinding and stay hype4life cuz sometimes life is not easy.  Stay in the game as long as you can.  I plan on being here for a long time.
