Last night I fell down the stairs for the second time in 2 months, and consequently fractured my pelvis for the second time in two months, it's all down to a massive weakness in my left knee, but all the surgeons are saying to see this one ligament specialist in London, but I can't get an appointment until November, but in the mean time, I'm becoming more and more scared to even go near stairs just in case it happens again, does anyone have any ideas either how to overcome this fear or how to temporarily support my knee so it doesn't give way? It's an issue of incredibly lax ligaments and traditional braces don't aid the twisting as it just happens underneath the brace! I'm only 19 and this is getting the point where it's ruining my life, I'm so miserable and in so much pain constantly, and the morphine they've given me just makes me horribly sick! The fibro impacts pretty much every joint of mine, and gives me terrible chest and back pain and I'm running out of ways to keep myself positive, as exercise was my release for ages, but I can't even do that without this awful knee giving way! Any suggestions for any of these? Sorry for the rant and a half I'm just so dismayed!
