  • John, thats quick that you have a date already. What are they going to be doing, a total knee replacement o are they going to flush it out. If they are flushing it will four to five weeks i believe,if it is a knee replacent it will be twelve weeks with pschyio. Hopw all goesb well for you john/.xxx

  • hi siyl they dont know till they get in their cos nothing showing on mri last may still getting me one and a half mile walks in and im getting a bit better on it but the other aches still happen on the ankle etc he didnt look like he wanted to go in but then he said off ever 100 i do i go in and do find somethig wrong in their it says on sheet under the care of mr k and im hopping i dont get an understuddy cos hes the best if their is somthing wrong he we find it and im hopping that this is whats causing all the problems since april.

    but then you say in your head i dont want to be sat in the bloody garden again all summer but then again is the private rumi i saw right about entheses and if they go in its balles up for good

    cos it must me something that did all this all over me body i dont put me self in a wheel chair to get round a bit for nothing cos im realy hard

    not like these footballers

    if i had fell of the bike i would have been a much happier bunny i would have know what i had done

    do you think if its ra they will know when they get in their syl cos nothing showing on me bloods?

    yes i thought it was fast but been with this guy for since 2005 go in say its ok moves forward a bit the knee but no pain then he says see you next year or 2 years

    so i must have got a cansalation

  • If they replace the knee John you will be able to walk quite quickly,but don't expect miracles overnight. If it is your knee causing your problems it could be wear and tear that is probally why no ra is showing up. You will be out of bed the day after any op you have and they will have you walking. My op last may was a big operation due to a bad knee replacement 3yrs ago and they had me out of bed walking with a frame. I am bloody minded and i was doing better than the other three in my ward who only had the first knee replacement. By the time i came out of hospital 7days later i was going up and down the steps and stairs,now don't get me wrong it was not as easy as that,in fact it was bloody hard work and i think you are the same way. You will have stick/sticks depending on what they do. I believe that your knee is degeneration of the joints more than ra,but i could be wrong. I will say you will be fine when it is over and you can start to do the exercises that the hospital will give you. You won't need a wheelchair John,but it will be slow,but you will get there as long as you do as your told. Love sylvia.xx

  • SYL its not a knee replacement but their is something wrong in the thing

    dont know why they feel watery its like a pad under their soaking up inflamation and it didnt show up on mri then moved to the other possibly caused by throwing weight accross to it.

    i stopped the swimming and consentrated on walking the last month it was doing no good all that kicking with it and it has got a bit better even though its a bit

    asda every little bit counts lol

    so realy they are doing an investigation looks to me so they dont know what they are going to find JUST MY LUCK FOR IT TO BE SOOTY what are you doing in their sooty. lol
