Why my orthopedic surgeon is cool. Also, my pre-busticated knee is on the fritz again

Me: It hurts when I stand up or sit down, the front of the kneecap...

Doc: I see.

Me: Also, there's this squishy bit in here that moves around. What is it?

Doc: (moving squishy bit around in my knee) That? It's a bit of rice noodle.

Me: Wha?

Doc: Ha ha! Just joking. It's gristle.

It certainly reminds us even doctors can have a sence of humor lol.

I don't believe in doctors any more. Afer weeks of pain, I showed my ankle to an nurse practitioner. She kind of poked at it, asked about my activities and said "yeah, something's probably torn. Ice it three times a day and take pain relievers."

I do that, and it hurts just as bad. And now I'm fresh outta health insurance, so I gotta grin and bear it. *shakes fist*

I would have preferred hearing it was a rice noodle. At least then I woulda known she was nuts.
