My real name is Jean, and I am a female, age 56.  I live in northeast Ohio, and I am interested in art, writing, nature, animal rights and health care rights.  Since 2001, I have been getting progressively disabed, with trouble walking, and muscle pain and stiffness, caused by exertion.  My first symptom was severe pain and stiffness in my sacroiliac area, that spread up my spine...

Navy Knee Pain

Ex Navy and that's not what I wanted but sometimes we can't help what happens. I like to keep active as best that I can but being that my knee is what is wrong and why I was kicked out of the Navy but I try.

I am a young grandmother of 68 yrs. old.  Soon to be 69 in July.  I have felt young at heart all my life.  Now age is cathing up with me.  soon I will have to make a decision  if I should have a partial knee replacement or a full knee replacement. This is what my surgeon told me. I feel that 1/2 a knee  surgery  is not good because somewhere down the road the...

San Luis Obispo, California
I am a mother of two, grandmother of one (and foster-grandmother of another!), who has had arthritis since my 30s or earlier. For several years I worked on ways to minimize the pain and increase my mobility, by exercise and diet particularly.  I know that I contributed to my own disability by carrying a lot of weight around for most of my life, although I will also note that my extra...

Hi, I'm a 64 yr old male who had a TKR on my right leg this year (2009).  My doctor was referred on the website for the Knee Replacement Device.  My knee got infected 3+ weeks after the surgery, operated on it again, and it's been a downhill ride ever since, incl a bone scan.  I would NOT recommend this procedure to anyone!  Removing an infection in a cemented process...

Jon L.

South San Francisco, California
I am a big guy, trying to lose weight gained by a major knee surgery and many years of bad nutritional choices. I'm starting to make better food choices and I'm exercising daily again. I would love feedback on my program and any tips that any of you would have to improve my program to get me more out of each workout. I work full time at a local health plan and I see the staggering rate of...

Al A.

San Francisco, California
I'm a web designer/developer out of San Francisco, CA and recently decided to stop using my bum left knee and busy lifestyle as excuses for being out of shape. I've lost over 20 pounds in the last few months just from changing my diet and getting back in the gym! I'll probably need arthroscopic surgery to get my knee fully back to new, but that's cool - I'm looking forward to getting back to...
