Hi, well I went to Physio today and my therapist got me to sit over the bed and she started to push to bend my knee...she let go and pop it went right back straight...she asked if i DID that..i said no...so she figures theres soemthing in my knee preventing it from bending past 40 degrees..its been 3 motnhs and im still at 40...im goin for a scope on october 28...i just want to be normal again!!!

Life might be hard and life might be confusing.  But the power of believing and hoping can make life seem so much simpler and easier. Laughing is important - its good for the soul and for the heart. Always smile. Have faith and be brave - soon things will get better.

You should definitely notify your OS.  They may try to get you in earlier, or just tell you to keep the appt you have.  I don't know what month it's for, but if it's Sept. that's only a week away.

Hood luck!
ACI was supposed to be 2/21/06.  On 6/29/06 Insurance co said have another scope, and if it still looks good, they'll ok the ACI.
