Just introducing my self
My name is Helen and I am 60.
I have been on crutches for 4 years having osteoarthritis in both knees.
I had an operation on my left knee then had 12 weeks of hydrotherapy and physiotherapy and lost the crutches.
Then was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol and put on medication.
Then on Thursday as turned around to open blinds my left knee gave way, went down and landed on my right knee.
So now on strong pain killers.
Have to wait for my knees to heal and then start all over again to strengthen them,
So here I go starting to eat healthy food and hope to lose weight and try to come ofall the medication.
I can’t believe it’s taken all this to realise how unhealthy I’ve got
