Hats off to Dr. Balooshi

For being my more interesting Orthopedic Surgeon. And since I told him about my blog (because I was looking for the video of my previous knee arthroscopy and knew I had posted here a while back) I am now obliged to wave at him. *waves* Hi Doc!

Dr. Belooshi is cool. Not only because once, when I visited, he had a kilo of Belgian chocolates on his desk, but because he hooked me up with some painkillers after my tonsillectomy when my ENT let me down with a pat on the back and a 'take two aspirin and call me in the morning' approach to recovery.

(I've learned, btw, that the reason why I wasn't prescribed post-tonsillectomy Codeine as per standard practice, is because in the UAE it's a controlled substance)

But I digress. My knee is malfunctioning again- clicking and swelling and aching from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep, so we're going for another MRI and then possibly another arthroscopy. This time, I'll be awake for when they poke the hole and then the camera inside. I'm feeling slightly weirded out by this. I'm ok with the sight of gore as long as it's someone else's. And on TV. I'm not sure what the point of keeping me awake will be if I'm just going to lie there with my eyes closed, gnawing on a corner of the blanket, hehe.
