I fell as I was reaching from my desk chair for an envelope I had dropped on the floor. I hurt all over. Both of my knees and shoulders hurt real bad,

I took Sunny for a walk around the block today. I had to be so careful cuz there was ice on the sidewalks. I did not want another fall. I am known to fall in the ice and snow and I am trying so hard to protect my knee. If I come down on it, the dr said it might have to be replaced again. I guess that is reason enough for me to stay on my feet. lol

That's right, Turtle, we don't want to see you confined to a wheelchair. Walking is good for you and you should keep doing it as long as you possibly can. I still drive and my apartment complex has assigned parking. I deliberately park further away than necessary just so I'll get some exercise.With my schedule, it's difficult to make time for regular exercise but this only takes a few minutes a day and I think it's helping me.

Be careful and stay healthy my friend…

Walking is good for mind and body…Just be careful in these winter months :)

Hi Turtle. Hope you are feeling better. I'm glad you had a nurse look you over. I agree you should tell your doctor. I still think you are having too many "accidents" over there! Please be careful. Hugs

yes I told the nurse the next day and she had me looked at and my pain med was increased for a week.

I am in lots of pain.

Hi Turtle,
I hope you let someone where you live know about the fall.
Was your bg low at the time? Hope you are feeling better

Exactly, tell those nurses!! From your recent posts I say you need some professional help!! Yell, or something, get their attention~ We can sympathize but none of us are close enough to do you much good! PR

Turtle, did you report your fall to a nurse? You should make sure there are no serious injuries. Don't count on your own opinion.
