My doctor gave me encouraging news on my lab results. Everything was good except my cholesterol. It had improved since my last lab tests but was still higher than desired. He prescribed a statin drug for it. He strongly encouraged me to get the once-in-a-lifetime pneumonia shot, which I did. He also insisted that I get a mammogram and a colonoscopy. Ugh!! I’ve made my appointments.
My injured left knee has recovered but the right knee is still bothering me. The doctor told me that I should have physical therapy for it. He also suggested some exercises that I should do several times a day to strengthen the muscles.
