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.
