Something interesting happened while at the doctor’s office recently that I thought was worthy of sharing. It involves my shoe lift fitting and a tkr. Here is an excerpt from my upcoming ebook:
My tkr leg is shorter than the other, a topic I have written about in previous posts. Well, while being measured for a new shoe lift, I was continually asked “how does it feel?” And..that’s where the strangeness begins.
How is one supposed to know how it feels if there is no joint to feel with? I was totally perplexed. Before my tkr, it was easy to know how my knee felt since I still had a knee. It may not have been operating as “normal”, but I still had a joint that told me how everything was and felt.
