    Gosh Susanne--you could write a book on things that can go wrong with one's body. Following your posts makes those of us with lesser problems feel like complaining 'babies." :snork: Hope you get some "good" answers--sooner rather than later.

    Thank you. But I really can't complain. My twin sister has been diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer 4 years ago. My pain is nothing compared to hers. But we keep on going. Strong woman strong genes
    Thank you
    Will keep you all posted

    If you click on his avatar, the last date he logged on will be there. It was Aug 30th this year when I just checked.

    We never know. People have a tendency to just stop coming to the forum and that's it.
    Perhaps he translocated to Facebook?

    So I've just noticed a lump in the outer side of my rt knee the knee that had the gell injection.
    So between the throbbing of my ankle and fat outer knee getting worried I'll never be better The back of knee killing me . My co worker who is a PT showed me some stretches to do. Now I'm not sure if I should be applying ice behind knee or heat
    Going back to ankle dr who's in same office as my surgeons I just
    emailed his PA to see if she can give me a quick look
    So Hoping nothing else wrong
    Also contacted neuro surgeon for back I have so many pain pills here and the sad fact is that only Advil works
    Josephine took your advice with the tramadol and Tylenol to add to the mix
    Picture of knee to follow
    Thanks for

    Not sure if you can see it
    It's like a fatty soft tissue bulge

    That was a waste of time can't really see it
    Thanks anyway
    By the way this is the leg I had the pseudo tumor and 2nd hip revision
    Could it be a residue
    Not thinking clearly. Getting overly obsessed over this mushy spot

    I can see a little bulge, does it hurt? Show it to the PA when you see them.
    Hope you got some rest and are feeling better today.
