The hardest thing in the world for me is asking for help.
But I really feel like I need it.
My knee has been dislocated (which is what happened last time,) and is swollen to almost twice its size. It will probably need surgery to correct it, because it is at least grade IV. The kneecap is floating, and can be moved over an inch side to side and up and down. I have fallen twice since I got re-injured two weeks ago, and can barely walk.
I’ve already had one surgery, and the pain keeps me up all night. Every time I walk, my knee makes an audible clicking sound, and it’s painful.
Last time this happened, I needed patellar dislocation and subluxation surgery, and had to have bone chips removed because my knee shattered.
Hopefully, I won’t need surgery again, but it’s highly likely. Even if I don’t, I can’t really afford to go to the doctor, get medication, or pay for physical therapy, much less the surgery. ($3000 last time.)
I know I might not get much, and I don’t plan on asking again, but even a few dollars would help. Anything would. Signal boosting, anything. Even if I only make $6, it will help more than you can possibly imagine.
^ My knee right now, complete with the surgery scar from before. It required arthroscopic surgery as well as the larger scar that is easier to see. And, as you can see, the knee is very swollen and slightly discolored. The glossy stuff is Vitamin E oil.
