Oh, I have my old injuries as well. I messed up a couple of things during my 7 years of riding Enduros. We aren't going to talk about any of that.
The Knee thing came out of nowhere. One day I got up from my desk with what felt like a stiff leg. I tried to exercise the stiffness out. Going up the stairs, that evening, I felt a "pop". Next morning I could barely walk. That was about 8 months ago.
The doc promised me an extensive evaluation if the oil treatment was not successful. We'll see what happens.

injuries from our misspent youth, yep the only thing I'm going to say about this is they find all sorts of unpredictable ways to come back and haunt you...

I somehow threw my knee out walking through an airport a couple years ago. Turns out I somehow "bruised the bone" on the long bone in my leg. I asked the doctor how I managed that. He replied "I wasn't with you". :-(

My new carry on bag can act as a rolling cane should it happen again.

My right leg got smashed up in an accident back in ‘92, put me in hospital for weeks and off work for months, both arms too.

2yrs back an ‘excercise physiologist’ put that leg in a stretch and ruined the knee, I spent 18 months walking like a penguin and using a knee brace. Even today it is weak, a simple flight of steps sucks bigtime...

Was jumping with a horse . My trainer was an ass...
We were doing 4'.9" course... The last time on a big Oxer .
We had jumped it at least 7 times along with many other jumps.
My horse just didn't make it this last time , He was young, and getting tired.
I was on the bottom of the pile. Me ,Horse and rails and standards..
The results a hip that will lock up . Mom wouldn't let Drs. operate .

I think we need a thread .. :dontknow
When HB and I were dating we would compare wound scares and injuries :lol8

I see that DrLewall started a "What Ails you?" thread. I got into reporting my knee adventures here because i found the doctor's approach to my problem to be very unique. I thought it was worth a mention.

Not sure if I want to post the other physical issues in my life in DrLewall's thread. They are just a gaggle of aches and pains that I worked to acquire.

A WHINING/BUTT HURT thread might be attractive.

I see that MrKiwi has decided to join the "Bum Knee Club". That is awfully empathetic of him. But he should have checked with me first, I really wasn't lonesome in that way.

Good luck, MrKiwi. Not a great way to start a year, but the company is welcome.

one of my biggest disappointments is the no dancing part..I miss the two stepping and the waltz's..cant do them now..would need a tow truck to lift my ass up off the floor when the knee gives out. :wall

Yep, a bum knee can really cramp your style. When my knee was at its worst, it was painful to bend over to pick something up from the floor. Presently, that's only a mild discomfort.

But, even now, I asked the missus if she wanted to return to RDV, she said, "Let's see how your knee goes." She remembers that when I came back from the Iowa "Rally", I was a mess. Tent camping, with all the getting up from the ground put a lot of repeated strains on my knee. I was hurtin' when I got home.

I'll see the doc sometime next week.
