after having the doctor look my xrays, he is sending me to his Ortho Doctor who does not like to cut, which is a good thing. This is the procedure that my doctor whats the Ortho Doctor to try. His study on this saids its really good, but I need to loose weight and keep up with the exercising, things I already know or knee replacement, which I dont want.

Well this picture is what they are going to do. Inject this stuff that lubes it all up. See I have worn it all down and on the inside of my knee its bone on bone and thats giving me the sharp pain all the time. To tell you the truth, it looks scary and I am afraid. I go in on the 7th to see the doctor and find out if I am a candidate for this or not. If not surgery is likely. Hope your week is going better than mine, but I have started my diet a week now and I have lost 6 pounds. Yippee..... Take care and see you all in blog land...

Wow, 6 lbs. in a week is great, what diet are you on? That procedure looks interesting and not that scary, better than cutting. I'll keep you in my prayers and thoughts for the 7th! Hey, at least you have all those hills in Beatty for walking, that will burn those calories off in no time! Love ya lots!! Sue

Good for you for losing the pounds. I need to too. My left knee is bone on bone also, but I will just keep hobbling along.
Eastern Washington in places looks just like where you live. The mountains devide the state and one side is wet and the other side is dry--with a desert even. It is a great state. MB
