This is not really a reply but a post.  I am new to this site and cannot find the referenced "don't know where to post" icon anywhere on my screen.  Anyway. Is there a search feature?  I am specifically interested in people's opinion and reactions to Hyalgan injections.

Thanks you Bill58.

I am replying to my last reply because I cannot figure out how to do an initial post.  I did find the search icon, which is really helpful, except for the following:
The search feature creates a list of all the posts which meet the search criteria.  But when I click on a post, I get, for example, a question from a knee sufferer.  I would really like to see the answer--ie the replys to that post.  How do you get the site to take you there?  The search feature limits you to just one post at a time, without any replys to it, it seems.\\

I know prob there is a simple sol, please someone provide!

HI THERE BILL!!
I would initially put your first post in this section and some people who reply may advise where else to post it (ive never had this injection done so im not 100% sure)
BUT,to log your post as a brand new post rather then as a reply to someone elses post click on NEW TOPIC on the right hand side of the screen above where the list of topics are,select your title by typing what you want the title to be and then whatever you want people to read in the main box press save at the bottom of the box when you have finished typing.
hope this helps!! let me know if you need anymore help and i'll do my best to help!!
welcome to the site!!

Hi...I am new to the site and would very much like to post some questions, etc but don't see exactly where to click to post something. I went to the Help section and it says that to start a new thread to go the Board Index page...which page is this? Sorry, I'm sure this is probably quite easy and I am missing something right under my nose, but can someone help me? I had surgery 2 weeks ago and am dying to talk about some of what I am experiencing now! Thanks!

JMCDERMO,

You may want to go back to the index and scroll down to the knee arthritis-- total knee replacement section. You can read a alot of posts from others who have had TKR and you can start your own thread to ask question.

This thread-- the one you are currently reading-- includes instructions on how to post your first message. Go to the beginning of this thread and start reading, you'll come to the instructions.

You might also want to click the little button "website" that is below your user info box at the upper left had side of the page. Knee guru's main website has all kinds of information on a variety of topics.

Regards,

Jaci

Help....I am clueless apparently. I've read the replies, and I still can't figure out how to post a question. Mine goes under arthofibrosis.  I searched for the "where to post" link but give up. Thanks in advance

Re: lateral release reversal
« Reply #44 on: March 31, 2008, 06:56:43 PM »
Clipped Wings,

I saw three doctors before I found one that could reverse my lateral release.  I would suggest before making an appointment to ask if the doctor can do the surgery.  I went to 2 well known large hospitals in Michigan and they had no one on their orthopedic staff that had experience with the surgery.  From what I know about lateral releases, they should be rarely done--only in circumstances where the patient has a tilted patella or dislocating problems that cause patellar pain.  There is not much medical journal info. on the internet about this.  Permanent sutures at used to hold the retinaculum in place.  Also, my vastus lateralis muscle had to be repaired with permanent sutures where it connects into my knee.  I hope this info. helps.
