    Swelling has gone down in knee area ... and I can't walk (w/out cane) again. It was kinda nice for a couple of days to feel slightly normal. BUT ... I am not going to fall again to get there ... lol. At least I hope I don't fall. I am really hurting allllllll over and have the perpetual flu symptoms again. :-(

    Hope you are ok? A cane would not have prevented this fall. I normally "scoot" items and like a dummy I decided to carry it and fell.

    I have used a cane for 2 years now. I am considering a walker. I have a really hard time getting out of chairs (bad knees, ankles, hips, arms, wrists, hands). I am going to build a platform to put under my recliner to raise it up 6-8 inches so I don't put such a strain on my poor joints when I have to get up.

    (((((((( hugs )))))))) and no more falls ;-)

    Don't know what to say, except boy, are you smart! LOL:) You already knew in your first post exactly how this was going to turn out.... sorry to hear your walking days are back with the cane, but glad there doesn't seem to be any severe damage.

    Better days ahead!

    Hi Engel - Sorry you are having so much pain in your knees. My knees hurt me too but my left knee seems to hurt worse.

    I wish you better pain free days ahead. Take care of yourself and sending you some (((((Gentle Hugs)))))
