Great News!!!
« on: July 11, 2003, 05:13:43 AM »
Hey Guys I never thought I would be posting under success stories, especially after thinking I was going to lose my kneecap, but I just went back to my os today and he says that everything looks great after the reconstruction and I started full flexion today and I just feel great and am praying that this was this answer to all my problems. So its nice to know that maybe there is hope after all out there for bad knees :P And I am with Iona on this I would love to here about more success stories. It may be a little early to tell yet but I am claiming mine as a success because this is the best my knee has felt in 2 years and if thats as good as it gets then thats good enough for me!!

That's great news Jennie - thanks for sharing! I am so thirlled for you especially after we thought you were going to lose your kneecap earlier in the year.

Good luck with the PT and here's hoping you continue to go from strength to strength Darl!  :)

Love and hugs.....Jo

Thank you Sylvia and Jo!

I am so pleased with this operation, but also very paranoid after so much has went wrong with previous surgeries which I know you have all been there and know what I mean!

Love,Jennie
