Harley,

Nettan is right. I think you should call your doctor's office and tell them what happened. Maybe he can use his influence to get you in sooner.

Good luck!

Hayley,

I hope the physio makes a big difference for you. Being on crutches messes up your body balance and causes other parts to rebel. So the exercises and maybe some massage should help.

Did anyone tell you you have arthritis in your hands? At your age that would be highly unusual. It may just be that your hands are hurting from using the crutches.

Sending you hugs,

Nancy

Hi
Keep at it, I hope the physio helps.  I had something different to you, but it started when I was about 9 or 10, and was diagnosed when I was 12ish Im 19 now).  Its not something theyve been able to do much about but ive found a doctor whos trying.  I saw my last doctor because it still hurt and he just said that the pain and the locking (sometimes i cant move mine, sometimes i can, but when it locks i cant straighten it) couldnt be real because he couldnt see anything!  at least they're trying.  Just keep at it and you'll get there in the end.  I dont know how youve been managing on crutches, I cant even make it to the end of the road on crutches, it hurts and i have no balance so i fall over a lot too, lol.  To get through when it was bad at school I used to think of all the things i was going to do, like when i could go to uni and get a degree and how all my friends would be jelous.  It helped to think of the good things I could still do, like being cleverer than my friends, and despite the doctor recommending it I never gave up horse riding, so I would (and still do) take painkillers and carefully ride my pony.  Its awful not being able to do things especially when your young and want to be out there enjoying life.  Its not fair.  Wish you the best of luck with your knee, keep at it, your doing great.

Hayley,

Good going girl! You are very brave and admirable. As Charlotte says, focus on the good stuff along with your fighting spirit.

Did you ever get a cortisone shot? That helps a lot with pain and inflammation. You can't have too many in the same place, but it sounds like you could benefit from it now.

Hugs,

Nancy

Hayley, thinking of you and hope for a good outcome of the Mri. It's good though that you can attend to school and get something else to think about.

Hayley,

I'm sending you all my best vibes, hoping that the MRI will show something that can be fixed.
