Hi Nick,

Sounds like a reasonable approach.  As you say even if the appointment is a ways out, at least you know you have one.  Enjoy your time at your sister's.

Hi All,

Did 180 miles to jinny without hitting too much traffic and went a steady 80mph most of the way. I had one break at a service station for 10 minutes as the bottom of my shin was hurting after driving for a while which has never happened before to me but goes away once I stopped driving.

I still not got a letter from alexander and will phone him up on Monday morning when I am back home from my sisters if letter still not arrived it will then be over 5 weeks since seeing the not so good OS that did not help me at all.

The knee pain not be as bad the last couple of days but pain is still there I now get sharp pain on the medial side as well as the lateral side that never happened so much before was mainly the lateral side before. I also felt pain around the bottom of the kneecap at work today.

I would love to be able to run again if I could as my mate jake likes to jog and has others that jog with him and would like to join him but I just cant begin to run as my right knee wont allow me to, its as if there some sort of tracking problems.

Hi Nick,

Glad you made it to your sister's ok.  The shin probably hurt cause you kept your leg in one positon for so long.  I get that when I go to a required work meeting two hours away from home.  Thankfully it's every other month so not bad.  Enjoy your stay.

Hi Nevella,

Yes I did show my email address on yours and lenore's thread and look forward seeing your blog on facebook. Had a nice walk today in the countryside and nice to go out and get some fresh air as Birmingham air polluted while suffolk air is a lot cleaner.

Hi Nick,

Glad you made it to Jinny's ok. Hope you have a nice time.

Please don't speed when you drive, you could have an accident. I've had 2 accidents within the last 2 years where people hit me from the behind and rear back side and am still paying the price for it, i.e. still recovering from my injuries.

Hope you have a letter when you get back or some sort of update. You have been so patient it's unbelievable.

Enjoy your break. :)

Great profile pic on Facebook Nick.  Hope to see lots more pics.  Nevella will teach you how to be a camera whore.  She's the best. 

How's the knee doing?  Still getting lateral and medial pain?  Hope you're doing OK and get that letter or appointment soon.

Hi All,

Its really good FB have so many KG friends already on there and nice to know what they look like and take a look at thier photo collection. I did feel the knee pain yesterday mainly on the lateral side and can really feel the catching/grinding each time place my hand over kneecap and inceased more now and know that not normal and need to see an OS soon. I really hope the letter arrives when I get back on Sunday night as its gone on long enough now and the longer I wait the worse the knee could become.This is what happened to poor Lenore who saw 4 OS's who said knee ok when it was not and now done some long term damage.

Had a nice curry last night with Jinny and her Family and of shopping in Ipswich this morning and really enjoyed my time away from work and need to win the lottery now and tell my Boss to F*** off as he really annoys me big time. I could then get treated at droitwich knee clinic privately and live a less stressfull life by not working for a idiot. I can dream of winning as it wont happen but do play twice a week so you never know.

Yeah, I guess I can't deny it any longer, lol. But I've been a bit less of one lately, hehe. Once I lose my 15 lbs I'll be back to being one again :D

hey Nick,

As I wrote on the Lenella thread, I'm gonna win the $48 million dollar lottery tonight. Then I'll give you some so that you can leave your job and never have to see your mean boss again.  and I'm gonna fly all of my KG friends to a private tropical island and have the best knee OS's there to fix them up :) I usually don't buy lottery tickets b/c the odds are so low. But then I sometimes wonder just how great it WOULD be if I did win. wow!!

I'm sorry you're still having pain and catching/grinding.  I'm just worried b/c things seem to be getting worse (and especially now that Lenore is back from seeing Noyes and found out that as time goes on, her knee will get worse).  So I want you to get help asap. I just wish there was something I could do for you and all my KG friends who are waiting for answers and for help :(  So, what's your next step? I'm trying to keep up to date. I agree with Allie that you should try to get NHS to pay for you to see that world class OS. You need to see the best right now. No use wasting time with other OS's who will likely not be able to diagnose you properly.  What do have you to do to get the ball rolling to see that expert?

hey, do you like spicy curry? You always mention that you love curry. Do you like a lot of spice? I do. I know some people like mild spice in their curry. Curry is delicious!!

ok, gotta go :D

Hi All,

Nevella would be good if you win $48 million lottery and get a KG reunion on a tropical island, you so sweet saying you would give away money to me so I can jack in my job and would not expect it from you if you did win. I would be happy just to have money to see Noyes and get treated and at the same time take a holiday. Curry last night was excellent and like strong curries like madras and vindaloo.

I feel my knee problems is not as bad as other KG members and might not be allowed to get the NHS to pay for Private treatment as I can work and not on crutches yet. Yes do feel catching and pain on the lateral side but had that for a while now and can feel it more then before but thats expected as its been 16 months since the fall. I have got so use to it, I dont feel the catching so much, but still there but might be wise to get it looked at by an OS failrly soon dont want to see 4 OS's like poor Lenore who say knee ok only to find out knee not ok by a top OS like Noyes.

I am too modest and just learn to put up with the pain and know I should get knee sorted ASAP.
