Durolane day

Yesterday afternoon I had my annual Durolane injection. 

A few years ago, I learned I have a 2cm section of cartilage inside my left patella missing after years of netball, so when I bend my knee it's a rather painful bone-on-bone experience.

Durolane is like a poly filler for joints. I found out yesterday there are new brands out now too and it's getting cheaper to do, which I'll look into for next year because my insurance company has randomly decided to stop covering it.

It's not the most comfortable thing to get done even with a local anaesthetic (think big needle behind kneecap 😱), but for a year of no pain it's worth it.

This morning it's not noticeably puffy, and only a bit red from the heat pack. But it hurts like #$*@&%!, can barely put weight on. Expecting to come good again tomorrow. 👍
