the orthopedic room.
the second drawer from the bottom had “cookies”. I really wanted to pull the drawer out to see if there were really cookies down there, but the doctor walked in as I was contemplating. he suggested that I get my knee scanned so that we could see what the problem was, if there was any. filling out the paperwork took longer than his visit with me, but that’s how it goes. luckily, I was able to make an MRI appointment the same day. unfortunately, the campus was a short walk away. and I only say unfortunately because it was pouring rain by time I made it back outside.
after walking 2 miles in some really heavy rain, I was pretty much soaked. definitely should’ve brought out the waterproof pants.
look at this guy, he took 3 seats in the lobby. I killed two hours down there, since my appointment wasn’t until 1:50pm. after draining my phone battery to oblivion, I took the elevator up to the office to fill out their paperwork. the guy who was going to do my MRI scan was actually able to scan me earlier since I was his only scan of the day. he said I could’ve showed up a lot earlier, too. so, I guess I didn’t need to kill two hours in the lobby, watching that guy multi-task with his awesome thinkpad. oh well.
the scan itself took about 40 minutes. my right leg was placed into a machine that looked like a donut. the guy set me up in a pretty comfortable chair, and had my left leg extended as well. and there was a blanket. so, yea, I fell asleep pretty quick.
I have a followup appointment to discuss the scan on thursday. hopefully, I get to take a copy of the knee scan so I can post it. or maybe the doctor will let me take a picture of the scan. I’ve never seen my knee in 3d before.
