Had the left knee scoped today and not feeling very good. Don't know the whole story yet but there was a lot of cartilage damage and lots of scar tissue to go along with the arthritis. If I have any more problems with the knee it will mean a knee replacement is in order. My daughter, grandson, and grand dog are spending the night with me. Pizza and Uno are on the menu for tonight.

Ouch. I know from knee pain. I had Osgood-Schlatter disease in both knees when I was in H.S. Got out of gym for almost a full year and even had to use crutches on bad days. Still have the bump on both knees and boy howdy do I feel it on cold damp days — even though it's not supposed to be chronic. eek

I sure hope you find some relief soon!

Hope you get to feeling better soon...had a friend who had knee replacement several years ago, turned out ok and he gets around better now than he did 10 years ago...you are lucky there are good hospitals in your area

Thanks for all the good wishes and kind thoughts. I had the right knee scoped three years ago and it went really well. Sure is different this time. I am using a walker to get around the house. I have a set of exercises to do but I can't even begin to do some of them. I am flexing and stretching as much as I can but the leg lifts are out of the question. I am hoping things will be better tomorrow when I take the bandages off.

I was planning on retiring in August but I may have to move that up some. I know all the women customers will be disappointed but they will just have to deal with it. grin
