« on: October 02, 2005, 01:31:27 PM »

               Extracts from diary for information
5th July
Book phisio appointment at work ankle left knee giving me a bit of pain from old ligament injury 15 years ago to knee, my quad exercise’s are not helping much.

7th July
Knee and ankle on left leg still giving me a bit of pain and on walking feel a bit of strain in inside left leg.

10th July
When walking in Liverpool feel a sharp pain up left side of back, which eases off when I stop walking.
But legs feel wobberly when I get home.

11th July
On going to the airport for holiday my legs still feel wobberly.
On arrival at destination we go for a walk to the sea front and my knees start stinging especially the left leg more than the right one.
But have no back pain felt.

12th July.
Left leg locks on stairs when descending have to do a rotation motion to get down the stairs.
But have no back pain felt.

18 th July
Decide to go to (walk in center)  because my left leg knee ankle and hip hurts a lot.
Am informed to go and see my doctor on inspection of left leg by the nurse.
As my hip hurts and feels grinding in on inside of knee when wearing trainers  felt something pop on inside of knee when going upstairs and my ankle seems to be turning inwards.
But have no back pain felt.

Make appointment at doctors.  I am told that I have knee strains. By this time I have put sports supports on them because they are stinging like nettles under my kneecaps especially the left leg and hip hurting.
Doctor informs me he will make an appointment with NHS phisio for me.
But have no back pain felt.

After a week I decide to book my own private phisio  who massages the left leg to relive the swelling and this works over a few sessions.
I also take advice and go swimming ever day; to do the exercise for the knee she has given me. And this helps a grate deal.
But have no back pain felt

8th Aug.
Make a private appointment with a knee hospital to review my knees especially the left one. On examination on ex rays he informs me there doesn’t appear to be any arthritis and says I have possibly torn my manisculars in the Left knee and slightly on the right one.
Says I should wait a few weeks to see if this clears before doing anything.
I wait to see if it clears but I am having difficulty walking on left leg more than right.
But have no back pain felt

Book operation at knee hospital. After leaving it some time as I am now getting upper back stiffness and lower back stiffness feels like I am leaning over to right hand side compensating.
And sweating a lot at night but this may just be the weather temperature.

16 th Aug
At NHS phisio am told that I should do quad exercises and get my left leg, which is weaker, stronger. I do the exercises and on the 2nd visit she puts ultra sound on the left leg on the inside Leg, and at night I cant get up the stairs for pain in it something feels lose inside Knee.

24 th Aug
At pre op my works Doctor who asked to see me. Told me to inform them of the position, as there may be some underlying causes to this. As I have got upper back stiffness and a sore neck using my right leg as my main support as it feels stronger than the left.
 Informed knee hospital and cancel operation.

1st SEP
I ask at my doctors if I could see a specialist regards my position.  I am given a list of general specialist.
I am also told my white blood count is slightly up on the blood tests they have done which means I am fighting infection.

I review the list and decide that there is no one on this list who is a specialist I need to see.
And ask a relative who has seen a Mr B.
Book private appointment with Mr B but am told by my doctor he is not on the list and I should be seeing a general specialist for my problem.

9TH Sept
I am asked by my own Doctors to come in for more blood tests, even though I have told them that Hospital will be doing extensive tests on my blood.

At present I have had shoulder on right, right hand side of neck Along with cracking in my neck and blips in my legs to my feet. With mid back soreness and feet hurting.
My left knee feels worse than the right one, have had hip soreness.
My walking distance with out the aid of my sticks has reduced considerably.
I feel like I am compensating for the left leg and walking more to the right or maybe some other cause.
And my body feels like it doesn’t want to hold me up with general tiredness felt.
But I am still doing as much light exercises swimming on my back in the water to keep mobile and exercise my quads so as not to waste any muscle power.
