Good news!
« on: February 26, 2004, 09:57:47 AM »
Hi all, I posted a message in Oct 2003 after being diagnosed as having a misaligned patella due to a dislocation when I was 16.  I went to visit an OS in the UK as I am a voluntary worker at 2500 metres up a mountain in Africa each year so this was going to be a big problem!  He asked me to reconsider going to this particular location to work and foresaw problems.  However, I went back as usual this year with a knee-brace and walking stick... and the amazing news is that for 7 weeks I was walking about 10km a day on average up and down steep, rocky terrain and had NO problem at all.  In fact, I was worse last year when I hadn't gone prepared with the brace and stick. I was so pleased so I thought I'd share the good news with fellow knee suffers.  Could it be that the heat was good for my ailing knee?
