I have OsteoArthritis in both knees.
I have a very painful condition called OsteoArthritis, which is degenerative bone disease. I have bone spurs growing around my knee joints. Just recently, I fell and injured my left knee even further! Now, I need surgery to repair torn ligaments and tissues. ArthriScopy Surgery.
This will clean out damaged issue and repair a torn Meniscus, but one day in the , (I hope, far off!) future, I'm gonna need total knee replacement on both knees. Since the bone is degenrating, it's beginning to affect my hips and back bones, as well. I tell you, some days just getting out of bed is a miracle in itself! But I keep moving, because it's the best medicine. I stay optimistic, concentrating on other aspect of life, not dwelling on what cannot be changed. At a young and beautiful 44 years of age, I still have alot of living to do! Alot of beautiful things in life yet to be explored and enjoyed, still awaits me! And I'm going for it!
