I'm going to make this straightforward.
My knees are crap.
According to my doctor, they are so bad (both of them) they should have started hurting years ago.
So there are two non-surgical medical treatments that could be tried. My research shows both are only marginally better than a placebo.
Anyway, I'm going for a second opinion, to see if I can find someone who will recommend physical therapy rather than shots and pills.
Fortunately, the knees feel enough better after a month plus of rest and anti-inflammatory pills that I'm going to try going on ice again, one more time. I've done some research and I need to apply some ice packs and that might help. Also, getting back in the habit of doing leg exercises may help me as well.
So, I'll try and keep you amused until I'm back on ice!
