A year ago I was walking an hour plus, with little pain. As the year has progressed to the point that I am in pain from walking from the car to the house. My knee would try to bend the wrong direction. I struggled and struggles, tried to explain it away thinking it was my back with referred pain. Did the chiropractor visits, looked all over online, to the point that I finally gave in and went to the dr. x-rays revealed bone on bone. This pain was not going to go away. Surgeon said he could give shots but when we get right down to it those would just be band-aids. And so the journey to new knees begins!
