    @Lynnallison175 I had my operation yesterday so I am very woozy. My knee was just like yours. The pain so times spread from my knee down to my ankle, and up my thigh. I went back to using two sticks, and even then I was hobbling. I got really frightened that I had something more serious. Now the worst is over I hope when it heals I shan't find that anything else hurts. Hang in there, you're not the alone out there.
    Love Jackie

    So sorry to hear about the delay, @Stefny. I hope you're doing okay and that the next time you have an EKG, you pass with flying colors! Maybe we'll end up being knee sisters.
    Take good care.

    @swmrgirl Such a sweet post thank you! Yes, we may be knee sisters after all! I actually have a couple of medical things I need to shore up and I think I would welcome a little break beforehand. Additionally, thanks to this site, I am so much more informed and I think I will feel better about it over all. Thank you for the kind thoughts! :):)
