It feels odd to get GOOD news from my doctor, but I did. I was at a follow-up appointment three months after injuring my knee and choosing this doctor to be my new "family" physician to replace one who had retired.
Anyway, my BP went down from 148/88 to 120/80, thanks in part to some medication he's got me on. My weight was down a dozen pounds, and my cholesterol was 208, which isn't quite where it should be, but not too far off.
He told me to keep doing whatever it was I was doing. He wouldn't go so far as to promise immortality, but I think he was just covering himself.
Oh, and the knee has been just fine for the past six weeks or so.
