"For she's a gel-ly good fel-low, for she's a gel-ly good fel-low, for she's a gel-ly good fel-LOW - which nobody can knee-ny.

&arph001 I had an appt. with another doctor and he cancelled. Found out he cancels 3 or more times with the same patient. Not reliable enough for me. Other orthopedists in the area don't take my insurance. I will go out of my area or out of state if it things get worse in the future...

Uh ....... if your doc is so goofy, why don't you see someone else, if even for a second opinion? But I hope the knee gel works well for you. Hobbling around in pain sucks!!

I never know whether to trust my doctors or not. Half the time I think they don't know as much as I do. That's rude, I know.

A few years ago my right knee was giving me horrible pain but I figured the pain would go away in time. Had to buy a cane. Two weeks later I am still in agony and finally decide to call my doctor. They got me right in to see a different dr in the practice. She suggested I have a shot and, although I hate the idea of someone putting a needle someplace it doesn't belong, I agreed. I went into the dr with a cane, and walked out without pain or cane. It has been absolutely pain-free since! The eggs I laid over the next few weeks really helped with the food budget.

I am really glad for you. And, your description of your doctor cracked me up.

&Katsmeow1213 I will need to get shots every 6 months, but the clinical studies haven't proved how long regular shots will be effective.

I'm glad the gel helped, and I agree with you with the no-surgery-by-Pee-Wee......Lol ♥

glad you are feeling better. Is this a permanent fix or do you need to get the shots regularly?

Have you laid any eggs yet? LOL - glad it's working for you! Hubby has the same problem in his shoulder.

I'm glad it's working for you. About four years ago I had severe pain in my knees. It just started one day. I had only had little occasional twinges until then. I started taking glucosamine sulfate, fish oil and cat's claw every day. I've never had a pain since then. Also, I had arthritis in other joints, but having an aversion to medication and doctors, I never took anything for it. After I started the supplements, all the pains in my other joints went away. I can play frisbee and rake the yard again. Not too happy about the raking. :-( But I'm really glad you don't have to get the surgery, although I knew someone years ago who had both knees operated on at the same time and she recovered so fast I couldn't believe it. Those shots are really amazing, huh? I never heard of that before. Um, you're not making clucking noises or anything, are you? hehe Good to see you back here! And glad you're feeling so good!! :-))

I'm glad it worked for you. Didn't know such treatment exist. May have my partner look into it. She has previously had surgery on both at different times, and they are now giving her fits. Like she really needs any more medical problems. I myself could use it. But lack insurance. I had gotten cortisone shots a few years back (when I had insurance) that helped for a while. For now I just deal with it. I can walk pretty good, just can't kneel and get back up very good sometimes. Just have to hope they hold out for a while.
