Hi to Everyone,

Now at the start of 7 months and have been to hell and back.

But now starting to feel a 'little' easier.

My Doctor has now given me Gabepetin 300mg 3 times a day to take away the throbbing, as there is only so much you can take!!!

Go to the gym every other day and do total work out, cycling, rowing, cross trainer, weights, leg lifts and any thing else the gym can give me along with exercises given to me from my PT. Aquarobics as well.

Now playing  tennis (or try to) twice a week, and running is getting better, not fast but at least I can go for a ball, even jumped for a ball last week.

My friends have noticed that I'm moving better.

I notices middle of this week that my knee seems to be a little more flexible.....

I only need 1 pillow in the bed at night also, I sleep on my right and place my knee against the pillow, not on it...

Away end of September and hoping to do a little more tennis, along with more cocktails!

Consultant said that I would be looking at 1 year until my knee was back to normal, so roll on Feb 2019.........

Best wishes to all, cos this is one hard slog.

Sue
