    @beachy, the ultra sound is helping my tendonitis, but the pain at the upper tibia has me back on the meds every few days. With the tendonitis being better, my night pains are less! I would recommend ultrasound for anyone who has tendonitis! Mine is at least 50% better! Thank you for asking!

    How are you and hubby doing?

    That's great about the ultrasound! Not so good about the tibia.

    We are well. He's better everyday. And today was the first day I was totally pain free. Wish I could send some of that your way!

    Yippee for pain-free! That is really saying something at being only 5.5 months out!

    I have two more ultrasound treatments. I pray that the inflammation stays away! Being back on 1/2 pill a day has helped the tibia pain lessen. I've been praying to get totally off on it, but it's in His timing or Will!

    I'm might be 5.5 months out, but haven't had all the knee surgeries like you. Mine was just a plain old tkr LOL!
    Maybe you will turn the corner after Lent. I hope it's sooner, but I've found when I've been struggling with something it's with me for the Lenten season. Does that make sense? Or do you now think I'm totally wacko? :rotfl:

    I understand exactly what you are talking about and I never thought about it like that. Now, is not the time to be concentrating so much on my ailments. Easter will be here in 5 weeks. Boy, does time fly. We all can be so much better by then! Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth. We all in this recovery can look forward to that!

    I don't think you are concentrating on your ailments. You are in pain.
    I truly hope your pain is resolved soon enough that you can enjoy the Spring and Easter.
    Happy Spring!.....oh wait, it's not official until 5:58 pm.

    Spring is coming in with rain here, but a little warmer temps. Now, for those hot and muggy days to stay away! I'm not a happy camper in the humidity.

    I'm happy with the way the ultrasound has helped my tendon. It's about 50% better. She also applied Kinesiology Tape yesterday. I have no idea if it's helping or not. The knee itself was bad last night, so I wonder if it was the Tape or just being off of the Diclofenac. I had to take a whole pill today. I had skipped them yesterday and only 1/2 pills for the previous 4 days. It could worse. My dosage is supposed to be 2 pills a day, so I'm doing better than prescribed! Tonight will be better. Tomorrow is my last ultrasound. I think I'll order some tape from Amazon just in case it helps.

    My chiropractor in Ohio taped my back a bunch of times. I liked it. She had tape in fun colors. She even posted on Facebook once that she was about ready to place an order and listed several colors for us to vote on. She was the best chiropractor ever and I miss her so much. She was the hardest person to leave when we moved away from Ohio.

    The first time I used it on my knee it seemed to help. After that it didn’t. If you were closer I’d give you mine, I don’t use it now.

    And just an FYI, I also ordered the sensitive skin tape and it didn’t stay on well.
