I'm a flight attendant or air hostess as some people know it, actually the professional term these days are cabin crew. Of course with only 65 degrees of bending at the moment it meant NO flying at all. I am only allowed to fly again when I reach 120 degrees at least. I am starting to get really bored!

I'm an attorney in California, but my job actually covers legal, finance, and hr for a small software company.  Fortunately, they've let me work from home 3 days/week.  I take a cab in the other 2 days since I still can't drive.

Hi everyone.....I just registered today after finding this site last week (I'm in the middle of a bad flare up....no sleep 3 out of 5 nights...rt knee drained rt hip and knee shot up with cortisone and xylocane.)...5 surgeries later including a 5 hr Maquet and I'm still dumb enough to help someone move last Sat.......nobody said ex-ruggers were smart :)..... I  feel so much better reading thru some of the posts in here..less alone and able to more easily laugh and get thru the rough spots...you guys rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

I work for a small web co. in NYC... a start up....a lot of sitting at the desk and staring at the PC checking stats, confirming content..etc (of course like most of you I get up and down quite often to stave off stiffness...)

have a great day everyone..

cheers,

Ron

4th yr medical student in london, 18 months left till I qualify! Not too bad unless your power walking up to the fifth floor ward up stairs on the post take ward round and your knees just don't wanna work!

When I get time off, I'm a psychy nurse for BUPA

Inbetween all of that I used to still be a prof. dancer till last year, pain wasn't worth it! (though I miss it soooo much)

I'm a paramedic working in more of an RN position in a local ER.  Used to be a firefighter, but obviously the knees aren't allowing it right now. Hopefully I'll be able to hit the streets in the ambulances/fire trucks once i'm re-aligned!!

I am a business manager of a school district in Connecticut.  Other than being out of the office for surgical recovery, my knee problems only mildly impact my ability to do my job.

I was trained as a high school teacher (spanish).  Was laid off and very unhappy about that.  However, since my knee problem I realise that it was probably a blessing in disguise because the building had too many stairs, and the pressure was too much.  Now I'm a stay-at-home mum and much happier.  I'll find some way of using my talents.  Maybe tutoring...a professional tutor and be able to make my own hours.  Sounds like a plan ;D
