Success Story - patellofemoral pain syndrome

Hi all,

It has probably been a few years since I last posted but I wanted to write to say that I would consider myself about 95% recovered. I can walk a mile in a day no problem. I live a normal life and don't think about my knees daily. Once in a while they get a bit weird feeling but that doesn't lead to any other type of pain. I do avoid running and certain exercises that put a lot of stress on the knee joint.

I still wear the knee high socks though!! And when I get paranoid I still tape my knees.

I never had surgery and I'd say that it took about 4 years to fully recover, physically and also mentally.

If you'd like to read my story it is in the pages here and I'm happy to answer questions if you want to DM me.

Yup, took me 6 years due to medical incompetence/laziness/tunnel vision.  Only my own research which led to Dr Dyes worked saved me.
