I hope that he is able to help you or at least give you some advice on options to take.  He really sounds like he does care about your knees.  Thank you for sharing this latest bit of news.

I wish you luck.  Please let us know how you get on.

Take care... Love ... Lizzie

Hey!

Wow, thank you all SO much!! ;D ;)
Well, I think I really need to lower my expectiations of how my OS appointments always go 
:-\  ???

Anyways, lol, I guess I will just cut to the chase  :P  ::)
Got hip x-rays & they look fine but my hip muscles are weak & are messing up so that is making my legs not function properly.. so I am gonna start PT for that & also my feet are flat so he has me wearing arch thingys (not quite sure what they are called but they go in your shoe). He thinks that those 2 things are not the total cause of my knee problems-pain, but he thinks that is making them worse, so we are gonna get those things fixed up & then go from there I was more so expecting him to know what is wrong with my knees & fix it, but then agian I think that every time I go........Well, I see him again on March 31st  :-\  I still have an appointment with that other OS for a 3rd opinion.....no quite sure to cancel it or just go  ???

**Apparently my OS doesnt believe the pain is in my head anymore!  ::)

~O yeah, lol, & in the mean time with my right knee giving out 2-5 times a day ever since November '04 & my left knee locking isnt that damaging my knee more....?   ???

Thank you all so much!!!!

I had an OS think the pain was in my head too.

Until he took xrays and an MRI, and then he apologized to me, but I went to a different OS anyway.

hope that everything works out for you!!  :)

Hey,
Glad that your os took time out to call you.  I know you may be a little dissappointed with what he said but you'd be surprised how often knee probs can  actually be caused by hips and feet.
I remember my first ever knee prob ages ago.  It got to the point where I had so much pain on the anterior, medial side that I could barely walk.  So I went and got it checked and got sent for xrays and then the doc said I might have some big long named disease.
Anyway, I had been wearing my casual gym shoes to work (Iwas a PE teacher at the time) and thought, I might just put on my proper volleyball shoes cos they had been fitted properly.
Well you wouldn't believe it!  The pain was gone after a day and a half of wearing correct shoes.  What was happening was that my other shoes were causing my arch to collapse which in turn, twisted my knee medially and anteriorally. therefore causing pain.  but my proper shoes were designed to keep my arch up and supported and not allowing my knee to rotate.   Result:  No pain.

Since my op in '03 I know my hip muscles aren't working like they used to.  My hip goes out of alignment often after a night's sleep and when I stretch I find some mornings quite difficult until it pops back into place.

Basically what I am saying is that it's all connected.  Knees are often the thing that are painful when it is a hip or foot prob.  So, give the new pt a try.  It may not solve all your knee probs but once your leg and foot are in proper alignment, you will give your knee a fighting chance.

Good luck and keep us posted on the new exercises.
