Thanks CG xxx

Yes, I am hoping for one of the least bad ones

We have just had dinner, we made some lamb burgers and french fries, a fast food themed night

Having a nice cup of tea now before heading into the lounge to put my legs up...recliners are very good for sore knees

I deleted the whole account. They were not able to recover deleted mails and the contact list. That was the important part. E- mail account per se is useless, I can e-mail from whole bunch of other e-mails.

I went to see the knee specialist this morning. He has booked me in for an MRI to have next Friday 16th August, as he said that is less invasive to see what is going on that an arthroscophy...although he said I may still be needing one of them after we get the results back from the MRI

He said it could be a number of things

1. A torn cartilage (meniscus tear)
2. A cyst (as well)
3. Arthritis
4. Something else but I cant remember it LOL...he was saying so much

So, out of all that, I dont know what would be best to have, sadly it is going to be at least one of them

It was hurting so much when he was prodding on the outer and inner sides of my knee...ever so painful to touch arrrgggghhhh!

Will keep you informed
Been there. Done that. Got the tee shirt.

After years of arthritis pain, I had my knee evaluated last summer. So badly roached with arthritis that there was no cartilage left and there was bone on bone grinding every time I moved it...and, believe me, I noticed it. Ouch!! The joint was so degraded that it would simply collapse with no warning and I'd end up on the floor. That was a real concern because we had infant grandchildren that I wanted to take care of/be with. Not safe carrying a baby when one's knee is that unpredictable.

Had to have a total knee replacement in early November. What a difference! I'm glad I did it, but the recovery and therapy isn't for sissies, but doable. I came out on the other side wishing I'd done the surgery much sooner.

Hope everything goes well for you, Kylie. And, as someone else has already said, hope it's the lesser of all the treatments.

I guess you will just have to keep a backup of your contacts somewhere other than in your email account. Good luck with re-creating your contact list.

Mourning the loss of my summer. I got exactly nothing done all summer, and I have to go back to work on Monday. Blech. I need another 6 months.

Katie, you certainly have been through the mill!

Thank you for caring, I so hope it is better news rather than worse

Mum was saying yesterday that if it is arthritis that I am a bit young to have it, but I was told by my doctor that is can happen at any age

My dad had 2 total knee replacements and my mum has had one, so if it is hereditary, I dont like my chances

Last day of vacation here too. Back to work on Monday. The daughter & I went & had a makeover for her today. She starts her freshman year on the 19th, moving into the high school. Wanted her to learn from the experts on the correct way to put on make-up w good, quality cosmetics as she is allergic to everything. Plans to go to a drive in movie theater tonight at dusk, maybe the county fair tomorrow afternoon.
